Replaceable ingredients

The salad is super variable. Theoretically, you can exchange as good as all ingredients. So you could prepare the salad several times a week and still have a lot of variety.

Vegetables: Here you can, for example, replace the tomatoes with peppers or carrots. I would prefer a vegetable that you can also enjoy raw, so that it still remains a “quick” couscous salad, but of course you can also fry mushrooms, for example.

Dressing: The dressing I have kept very simple as well. It would certainly also be delicious with some tomato paste and oil or a delicious honey mustard dressing!

Couscous: Of course, you can also replace it. For example, against quinoa, then the salad would also be gluten-free. If you have already prepared the quinoa before, so I usually do it, then you have so to speak a delicious salad prepared at lightning speed.

Extras: Of course, you can add a lot more. For example, I’ve eaten the couscous salad with roasted peanuts. This is also highly recommended! Gives the whole thing an extra crunch.
