No Cook Couscous Salad - New Recipe on 08/08/2011 17:04:56 MDT Print View

I added this easy recipe to the website yesterday evening. http://www.trailcooking.com/recipes/herbed-tomato-couscous-salad

Herbed Tomato Couscous Salad
Ingredients

1⁄2 c couscous (whole wheat or regular)
1 T tomato powder
1⁄2 t italian herb seasoning
1⁄4 t ground black pepper
1⁄4 t kosher salt
1⁄4 t granulated sugar
1 T olive oil (1 packet)
1⁄4 t onion powder (not onion salt)
1⁄2 c cool water
2 T shelf stable Parmesan cheese

Instructions

At home mix the couscous with the seasonings and pack into a pint freezer bag or sturdy sandwich bag. Pack the Parmesan cheese in a small bag and tuck the oil packet in with the bags.
To prepare:
Add the oil and water to the bag, stir well and let sit for 10 minutes to rehydrate. Stir well and add the cheese, mix in.
Notes

This cold salad can be made with hot water as well.
For tomato powder see http://www.packitgourmet.com/Tomato-Powder-p169.html - it can clump up but is easily powdered even through the freezer bag before you add the water.

That looks good, and I've never even had couscous.

Eddy, it actually works well both hot or cold. Now if hot...it would be even better with a 3 ounce can of chicken added.......(with any broth in the can).

Glorious Glacier Basin at Rainier - on the newly opened super trail they built. Hiked almost the entire trail without looking at my feet :-D And after lunch we got to see a bear as well. It was a good day!
