Couscous Salad with Spinach and Toasted Almonds

Ingredients:
1 cup couscous (I used Lundberg’s Organic Roasted Brown Rice Couscous which is gluten free)
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cup very hot water
3-6 green onions, cut into 1/8” slices
4 cups (5 ounces) spinach, chiffonade or thin slices (I used My Minnesota Farmer’s fresh spinach)
½ cup toasted almonds
Lemon salad dressing (I used Salad Girl’s Lemony Herb)

Directions:
Bring couscous and water to a boil.
Once a boil is reached, turn heat to low, cover pot, and let simmer on low for 10-12 minutes.
Fluff with a fork and let cool. At serving time toss in spinach, almonds, and green onions. Stir in enough dressing to moisten.

Sophie’s remarks: “The chiffonade is an awesome art to master, and the salad was appreciated by my entire family. The mixture of ingredients was excellent — light but perfectly filling and satisfying. The meal took no more than 20 minutes to make including almond toasting time.”

Enjoy!
