Nectarine-Couscous Salad with Blueberry-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Kris Wetherbee | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 6 people

Sweet nectarines combine with a tangy and nutty dressing and healthy couscous in this tasty, light-on-your-feet salad. Try different combinations of superfresh summertime greens, such as frisée, curly endive, and baby spinach leaves.

  1. In a small bowl, whisk all vinaigrette ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Combine couscous, hot water, and salt in a casserole dish or bowl with a tight-fitting lid. Cover and let stand for 5–10 minutes. Stir in green onions and fluff couscous lightly with a fork.
  3. In a medium bowl, gently toss sliced nectarines with lime juice. Arrange greens on serving plates and top with couscous–green onion mixture and nectarines. Drizzle lightly with vinaigrette and serve.
