Cooking with Parsley: Couscous Salad

This herb is more than just a frill.

| June/July 1996

  • Parsley plays an important part in this delicious summer fare of French Lentils and Couscous Salad.

Serves 2 to 4

Cold couscous, green with parsley, is as common in North Africa (and French delicatessens) as tabbouleh is in the Near East. Both make great summer dishes.

• 1½ cups couscous
• 1 large tomato, chopped
• 1 large garlic clove, mashed
• Juice of ½to 1 lemon
• 1/3 to ½ cup minced parsley
• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1. Place the couscous in a glass or pottery bowl and fill it with water. Let the couscous soak 3 to 5 minutes and immediately drain off all the water.

2. Add the remaining ingredients to the couscous and mix gently with a fork. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the grain absorb the dressing before serving.
