A Final Taste of Summer!

Time now for our last recipe in this summer series and I’ve saved the best for last (although they’re all excellent). This is truly a magnificent summer salad. Thanks to our close proximity to Morocco, this recipe migrated to Andalucia through the family of a close friend of mine. Claudia’s Authentic Moroccan Couscous Salad 2 cups of couscous – prepare according to instructions and chill 1 ½ cups cooked, drained garbanzos – chilled (you can buy these canned) ½ large red pepper, chopped 1 tin black olives, chopped 2 medium cucumbers, chopped 1 cup feta cheese, drained Couscous Salad Dressing Puree all these ingredients together: 3 plain yogurts 2 cucumbers 1 clove garlic, peeled Fresh mint leaves – to taste Fresh cilantro leaves – to taste Squeeze of vinegar Salt and pepper to taste Chill the salad and the dressing. Serve cold. This fresh, healthy dressing can be enjoyed on a variety of other salads as well. Enjoy!
