No Limit "Pasta" Salad

Recommended Posts

So in the summer I love pasta salad, in the past I would use whole wheat noodles and just plan carefully so I didnt mess up on my pasta/potato/rice rule. Well this morning I got to thinking hmmmm, wonder if I can make summer pasta salad with a different no limit grain, so I invented this recipe this morning and it is delicous and SiFi!

 

 

Sorry such a big picture

1 Cup Dry Whole Wheat Couscous, prepared as directed but put 2 chicken bullion cubes in water.

1 cucumber I made mine into ribbons

20 cherry tomatoes halved

1 cup shredded carrots

3 green onions diced

1/2 cup red onion diced

1/2 bottle fat free zesty italian dressing

2 tablespoons McCormick Salad Sensations Salad Seasoning.

 

Cut up all veggies while couscous is cooking/resting. Put in Large bowl, add couscous, dressing, seasoning and stir, let chill at least 1 hr before serving. I hope you guys like this as much as me!

Now you're thinkin'! :bcb_happy

 

I'm positive that's why WWs did what they did (with their limits and food list): to get us to explore new avenues (and grains :bcb_up).

 

Your salad is EXACTLY like something I would love (and make). :bcb_bigsm

 

Thanks for sharing ~

Cold grain salads are supposed to be really good for you, too. :salut

 

The cold grain gets processed differently by the body than warm grains ~

 

(I call whole wheat couscous "fast food". Can you believe that it's done in only a few minutes?! A-mazing stuff.:salut)
