Summery couscous salad

The sun is shining!! Perfect timing for this vegan couscous salad full of nutrition but extremely low on calories to keep that summer body going!! Couscous is a great alternative to rice or pasta if you want to stay low on the calories but still eat some carbs! Perfect for a pre-workout or just as a delicious lunch!

All you need is:

  • 100 grams of couscous
  • 1/3 cucumber
  • 150 grams of cooked beetroot
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 paprika
  • 150 grams of cherry tomatoes
  • salt and pepper for seasoning
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar

Dice the red onion and beetroot and mix together in a bowl. Then dice the paprika, cucumber and tomatoes. Cut the spinach in larger pieces and add all the ingredients together in one bowl. – This is already a nice salad by itself but ones you add the couscous it becomes even tastier! Mix the couscous and the salad together and season with salt and pepper. To finish drizzle with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

For an extra crunch add some pine nuts or cashews nuts!
