Update: Für das deutsche Rezept nach unten scrollen!

Just another comfort food. Just another perfect summer dish. Just a perfect snack. Just a perfect everyday dish. Just a perfect picnic dish. Just a perfect side dish for grilling. Just so many options for eating this wonderful, delicious and easy salad.


It hasn’t deserved the word salad. I mean salad is something, that involves some lousy leaves of some green plant. It’s something, that doesn’t saturate. Attributes that have nothing to do with that „salad“. You can serve the salad immediately warm, or cold or at room temperature. So versatile again.


This dish involves only delicious ingredients. Couscous, avocado, pine nuts, mint, honey. The product has to be luscious. And it is! So next time you go by an avocado, buy it and remember this dish.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow, since then we’ll be going to the market again. Maybe I’m making some photos then and a bit of story telling about it next time. We will definitely go to our favourite market stall again, buy vegetables, especially those great tomatoes, buy some bread at the bread stall, cheese and maybe some flowers. Some of the flowers, which we bought last Saturday and I showed you in the last post are still vivid, like the beautiful orange lilies and the gerbera.

  7. I don't know why I never thought before to put avocado in a grain salad. Absolutely love this idea. Thank you and Donna Hay, too!

    This looks great…one question though…is the couscous cooked beforehand?

    Thank you!

  9. @Anonymous: the couscous is just cooked like I described it above in the recipe. No more cooking before. The couscous doesn't take any longer to cook. But I don't know if it is an „instant“ couscous, although the package says nothing about that. To be sure, follow the instructions on your couscous package and replace the water with chicken broth, the butter and salt.
    Enjoy your couscous salad!

    Found this from foodiecrush and loved it. I didn't realize the name wasn't a part of the recipe at first. So I altered it 🙂 and added coconut milk and some vanilla – it was delicious!!!! Thanks!
