  • 1 Cup Medium Grain Couscous
  • 1 1/2 cups Warm Water
  • ¼ Red Onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 Tomato, diced
  • 1 Cucumber, diced
  • 10 Sundried Tomatoes, chopped

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl combine the couscous and water. Allow to sit for about 15 minutes. The water should absorb completely. Using a fork, fluff the couscous.
  2. Meanwhile prepare the asparagus. Place the asparagus spears on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with salt and pepper and a teaspoon of the olive oil. Place in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cooled, chop into ½ inch pieces.
  3. Combine the asparagus with all remaining ingredients into the prepared couscous.
