Garden Couscous Salad

I needed a side dish to go with our veggie burgers tonight, and had some stuff to clean out of the fridge. I put together this salad and it is perfect alone or as a side!

3/4 cup dry couscous
1/2 English cucumber, diced
2 medium tomatoes, diced

Dressing:
1/8 teaspoon Kosher salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic
pepper to taste

a few fresh basil leaves


1. Cook couscous according to directions. Cool and mix with diced vegetables.
2. Mix all ingredients for dressing and pour over couscous. Stir to combine.
3. Refrigerate a few hours and add torn basil leaves before serving.
