Mmm... couscous salad

Although this is by far not a food blog (for two really lovely food blogs go to Delicious Days or Domestic Goddess), if I discover a really yummy recipe I will share it with the rest of the net world.

So here's my new discovery. It's actually not so new, it's just that in its modified form it's more than delicious. And it's incredibly easy and really, really fast. And since you only need the stove to boil the broth, it's also perfect for friggin' hot weather.

Presenting Couscous Salad a la Dr. Cocoa Puffs

You need:
- couscous
- vegetable broth
- curry powder
- vegetable oil
- butter

Prepare the couscous. I use more or less equal amounts of couscous and broth, with about 1-2 teaspoons of curry powder and/or tumeric mixed in. Boil the broth, add 1 tablespoon oil, mix in the couscous, remove from heat, cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Add about 1 tablespoon of butter and fluff with a fork

Meanwhile, mix together:

- cucumber, peeled and chopped
- bell pepper, chopped
- tomato, chopped
- black olives, sliced
- fresh mint, finely chopped
- fresh parsley, finely chopped

Once the couscous has cooled down, mix the couscous in with the veggies. Let it sit for a bit (hey, I'm a poet and didn't know it!) to let the flavors blend. It can be served so, but to make it even more special serve it with a Yogurt Herb Sauce, a brilliant stroke by the Guitar Hero.

Yogurt Herb Sauce

Mix together:
- plain yogurt
- fresh herbs, finely chopped (we used mint and parsley)
Season with a little garlic powder and a pinch of curry powder.

As for the amount of couscous and veggies needed, this depends on how many people need food and how hungry they are. Guitar Heros might need a bit more than your normal everyday person.

Enjoy net world. Mmm... couscous. I think the leftovers are calling me...
