Italian Chopped Salad With Couscous & Chickpeas
I found this recipe on the Italian Food Forever blog. The original recipe calls for Farro. Well, guess what I did not have. But I had Israeli Couscous. Not a bad substitution. We loved this salad. There are so many things in it. I liked the veggies chopped nice and small and the arugula added a nice peppery flavor. I did not add the radicchio, it is kind of expensive.
The dressing, lemon and olive oil, is my absolute favorite. Just those two ingredients with salt and pepper are all you need. Throw out your bottled salad dressings!
This recipe makes enough for at least 2 meals, and maybe a lunch too. Perfect for these hot summer days.
Chris grilled Chicken breast that we served along with the salad. They were marinated in olive oil, Cholula Sauce and salt and pepper.
