Mediterranean Couscous Salad

Mediterranean Couscous Salad

I had to modify this slightly and used curry instead of asifoetida. Large green olives stuffed with garlic, no garbanzos (chickpea) or green bell pepper. I made my own tahini from ground sesame. This was a delicious salad and a big hit!

Photography Notes: I love to decorate food as much as prepare it. I used ingredients from the salad to decorate the top. Most notably the lemon peel around the bowl's edge was left over from the fresh squeezed juice. The rounds were made with sliced cucumber, tomato, olive and topped with a peanut. The pinwheel center is green bean and red bell pepper.
