Kitchen Sink Whole Wheat Couscous with Lemon Vinaigrette

I love putting together salads with stuff I already have on hand. I think it is fun to come up with new combos and clean out the fridge. I always stock up on the Trader Joe’s whole what couscous. It is great to have for so many different salads. Cooks in 5 minutes and really tastes great with any veggies. I made this salad this week and devoured it yesterday for lunch and dinner. It is so yummy! If you want to make it a heartier meal add some grilled chicken or shrimp! Enjoy!
