Arugula, Beet, and Couscous Salad

If you tried my last recipe you probably are sated. This fresh salad was just the thing Griffin and I needed to squeeze in some more vegetables to our weekly dinners.

I love this salad because it's quick to whip up and straight to the point. No funny business here. I was inspired by, yes you guessed it, the Just Married cookbook. My recipe has a slightly different twist by opting for pistachios instead of hazelnuts. Feel free to make this your own too!

Just cook your couscous according to the packaging. (I got mine from Trader Joes and it was ready in 5 minutes). Toss it with everything else in a big beautiful bowl and add some avocado for a delightful and filling meal.
