Garlic Shrimp and Herbed Couscous Salad Recipe
A tasty dish comes together faster than it takes to set the table? Yes, please! This light and fresh pasta salad uses Israeli couscous (also called pearled couscous), which cooks up in minutes and is a great blank canvas for all sorts of ingredients, like crunchy cucumbers, tender herbs, crumbled feta cheese, and tender garlic shrimp. A tangy lemon-olive oil vinaigrette ties all the flavors together and livens up the dish without adding a ton of extra calories. This dish comes in at 437 calories per serving with 24 grams of protein, 44 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiver, and 18 grams of frat. Serve with lemon wedges on the side for added brightness. This couscous salad is delicious eaten on its own or served over a bed of lightly dressed salad greens. You can have a fresh and healthy dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.
Test Kitchen Tip
Israeli couscous (also called pearl couscous) really soaks up the tangy dressing, but you can also substitute a cooked, cooled whole grain like quinoa or bulgur.
