MW Couscous Salad

I can have salads even everyday or even anytime of the day..Sometimes its kinda hard for my family members to eat them, coz most of them love junk foods very much..But am trying to keep everyone away from those foods and just feeding them with fresh veggies and salads...Coming to this couscous salad, its takes only 5minutes to get ready, a wonderful salad to enjoy while its hot if they are served chilled or else serve them immediately with grilled meat or steamed veggies for a lunch or dinner, you have many choices to enjoy this filling salad with your choice of meats or veggies..Since am running blogging marathon, i choosed microwave oven for cooking couscous, you can very well make them in stove top..I have added few sweet corn kernels and finely cubed bellpepper to this salad and spiced up with vegetable stock,lemon juice,olive oil and salt, you can very well add many veggies of your choice for a colourful salad..Check my blogger buddies running this 8th edition of blogging marathon with me here..Pls dont bother for the picture,something went wrong in my camera,i couldnt able to fix it since yesterday,am trying to point out the fault hope i'll get my camera back to normal today.


1/2cup Couscous
1cup Vegetable stock
1tbsp Lemon juice
2tbsp Olive oil
Salt
1/2cup Sweet corn kernels
1/4cup Green bellpepper (cubed)
2tbsp Parsley leaves (chopped)

Take the couscous in a microwave safe bowl, add the vegetable stock,olive oil and salt, mix everything well and cook for 3-4 minutes high (stir twice in between),until the couscous grains get well cooked...Keep aside and let it cool completely..

Add the sweet corn kernels,cubed bellpeppers,chopped parsley leaves,lemon juice to the cooked couscous and toss everything gently...Keep in fridge for an hour before serving or serve immediately..
