Mango & Cucumber Couscous Salad


 
When you think of Morocco, you imagine Couscous all toped with seven kind of vegies and a hot lava of caramelized onions… But in summertimes it can be hard to fully enjoy its taste. So, how about an exotic refreshing couscous ? 
 
For this perfect summer recipe,  I thought about bringing a modern twist into couscous. So I decided to make a Mango & Cucumber couscous salad. 

 

 
Ingredients: 
·         1 1/2 cups couscous 
·         1 english cucumber
·         1 ripe mango
·         coriander

For dressing:
·         3 tablespoons apple vinegar
·         1/2 teaspoons of ginger
·         1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
·         1 teaspoon of honey
·         1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
·         3 tablespoons of olive oil
·         1/4 teaspoon of salt
·         1/8 teaspoon of black or white pepper.
Preparation:

1-     Cook couscous in boiling water (like pasta) 10-12 minutes. And let it cool down. Or, you can steam it three times over a rapidly simmering stew.
2-    Peel and chop cucumber and mango into pieces of  equal size. Mix together all ingredients for dressing.
3-      Combine couscous, cucumber, and mango in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss to distribute evenly.
