Curry Cous Cous Salad

joeyjoan K


This another recipe idea I got from Giada's cooking show on food network.I didn't have all the ingredients on hand so I used what I thought would be a good compliment to the ingredients I did have.
Make it no more then an hr before serving.
I didn't have cauliflower this time but the next time I make it I intend to include the cauliflower, so I have included directions for the vegetable as well.
