Gather your ingredients
In medium bowl, combine couscous, 1-1/4c boiling water, 2 tsp olive oil & contents of spice sack found in couscous box (we used Mediterranean Curry flavor). Cover, wait 5 mins, stir, bring to table.
Now make the dressing: squeeze the orange and lime to get some orange and lime juice for dressing.
Pour olive oil into mixture of orange and lime and add salt/pepper/herbs to taste.
Pour in balsamic vinegar while whisking vinaigrette. Add 1/2 c water to dilute. Bring to the table with a small serving spoon.
Cut peppers into little pieces like so.👆
Put cut-up peppers in bowl. (We are transferring steps because we are completing this guide with more than one people.) bring this bowl to the table with a small serving spoon.
Cut up onions and put them in bowls. (WARNING: onions may cause tearing to eye, but keep mouth closed, it will partially keep this from happening.)
Cut rest of materials.
Put all cut-up vegetables into their own individual serving bowls and bring to the table with serving spoons. Find a nice big platter for the lettuce leaves.
The center of your table should now look something like this.
So crazy good, made FOR you, BY you. And wow- lots of vitamins (but you can't tell) and hardly any calories.
If you have leftovers, mix them all together in a plastic container and store in the fridge for Grandpa's lunch tomorrow. He will say "Thanks for the Israeli salad- YUM"
