Lemon Asparagus Couscous Salad with Tomatoes



This was a really nice side dish! I couldn’t find pearl couscous so I just used whole wheat couscous. I felt like it needed a spice but I couldn’t figure out what spice to add to it. We still really liked it though.

Ingredients –
3/4 cup cooked & cooled
whole wheat couscous
1 lb thin asparagus tough ends trimmed
1 1/2 cup grape tomatoes halved (I quartered any large ones)
1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
1/4 cup red onion diced
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place asparagus in boiling water & cook for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes pour into a colander & rinse with cold water. Once cooled off cut into 1/2″ slices.


Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Serve cold.
