OTHER LANGUAGES: deGerman

Couscous salad is on the menu today. I’ll show you my recipe for couscous with mint, asparagus and strawberries.

This salad has something refreshing and I bring the couscous to the table with a lemon-honey-mustard dressing. In addition to strawberries and asparagus, mint plays an important role in the taste.

This couscous salad tastes good on hot days, it is a great surprise and change for the next barbecue.

You can easily replace the strawberries with cocktail tomatoes, experiment with the ingredients, couscous succeeds, let yourself be carried away to cook now and use the following recipe as a guideline for your own kitchen.

Step by step photos accompany you while cooking….Questions to the recipe I answer you gladly over the comment function at the end of the page. Good luck!
