Healthy Couscous Salad

Couscous is a nutritious Mediterranean grain which can often be used in salads as well as in main course. In this recipe, couscous has been used to make a healthy, nutritious, multi-textured salad, which makes a great alternative to the normal calorie-laden snacks. If you find it difficult to find couscous, you can replace the couscous with our very own dalia.
