Lentil Couscous Salad
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min. + chilling
This was not only a really good salad, but can be made completely without cooking if you have precooked lentils (the Trader Joes vacuum packed ones are perfect). You can make this in really hot weather or without electricity as long as you have a way to boil water. It is also a complete meal and very healthy. Since we are not so concerned with low fat, I doubled the dressing, used 1 cup of couscous instead of 3/4 c., and added some feta cheese at the end. Because my elderly parents are somewhat sensitive to spiciness, I left out the jalapeno and used less hot sauce than called for. I also used frozen roasted corn, because it is tastier.
