This salad uses Israeli Couscous you can find it in most supermarkets, I like to toast it first I think it adds a nice flavor to it!

  1. Mix Dressing ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil in a large saucepan over a medium/high heat add Couscous and stir until golden and toasty, about 4-5 minutes , pour Vegetable Stock/Broth over the Toasted Couscous and bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to medium low, cook until just tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 8-10 minutes.  Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Toast the Slivered Almonds in a dry pan for a few minutes until slightly brown and fragrant, keep moving them around the pan so they don’t stick or burn, let cool.
  4. Coarsely chop the Spinach & Parsley, halve the Tomatoes, Dice the Red Peppers and the Fresh Mint.
  5. Mix Couscous with the Dressing and then toss with the other ingredients and serve.
