Israeli Cous Cous Pasta Salad

Robert Thomas


My betrothed is a case manager for a regional hospital in Northwestern Vermont. Their kitchen does a great job preparing healthy meals, some being low-sodium variety.

This is a nice, refreshing recipe for summer. It was obtained from the hospital chef. The original recipe called for a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette dressing but the sodium level in store-bought brands were too high.

I chopped marinated sun dried tomatoes from DeAllo brand which are only 10 Mgs sodium per 2/3 oz.

Israeli Cous Cous is just tiny pasta balls, no sodium and the rest chopped veggies and oil and vinegar.
