Sometimes you want food to look as beautiful as it tastes and this salad totally fits that bill. Strawberry Israeli Couscous Salad is not only a delicious marriage of flavors and textures, but it’s also so darn pretty!
Summer time is fruit time at our house!
We are not the biggest fruit eaters in the winter time, mostly because living in Minnesota there is no fruit in season. So instead we depend a lot on apples, pears and frozen fruit for smoothies. But come summer and we become fruit monsters 🍊 🍓 🍒
Currently my pregnancy summer craving is WATERMELON! Maybe it’s a sign that I will soon have a watermelon sized belly … but dang do I want watermelon all the time! Breakfast, lunch, and late night snack… WATERMELON.
And I’m not complaining because as far as pregnancy cravings go, this one is pretty healthy. So if it means I have to buy a 20 lbs. watermelon every week so be it.
Something else we like doing in the summer is incorporating fruit into our weekly recipes. Adding pineapple to skewers or to stir fry, berries to coffee cakes, mango to salsas or in this case strawberries to salads.
Alright, so about this glam salad…
Perfectly tart and sweet strawberries
