"I made this when I needed to clean out my pantry and use up our crop of cucumbers. This salad is light, fresh, and fast. You can add in whatever fresh vegetables you have on hand, and experiment with herbs and dressings. I didn't have any lemons on hand but I had a lemon poppy seed dressing which was too thick for this salad, so I thinned it into a vinaigrette with olive oil and vinegar. I served this with a hard-boiled egg on the side for an extra protein kick."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Wow, this was SO good! I made my own poppy seed dressing, and it already had a lot of oil in it, so I just used 3 tablespoons of dressing on the salad. I can't wait to make this again! Thank you so much for the recipe!
I have made this last evening. I didn't have the couscous, but used a bag of rotini pasta instead. Used 2 cucumbers instead of 1. Added some chopped onion (and a small amount of turmeric 1/4 t. use turmeric in everything for its health benefits) No hard boiled eggs. No lemon poppyseed dressing but added the juice of 1 lemon. Followed remainder of recipe. Hubby said this was the best salad I ever made, bar none. He said the crunchy cukes made all the difference.
