Pearled Couscous Salad


There's a nice little salad for my WW buddies and everyone else that enjoys an occasional salad! I basically spent the whole week eating it with salmon ,or chicken, or steak, really with just whatever protein!

My favourite thing about this salad is definitely the cucumbers, it gives it such a nice freshness. I hope you try it, its very amazing, refreshing and light!

1½cup couscous dry 5 mins salt

1 Red onion

2/3 Big Cucumber
