Basil and herb pearled couscous combined with sun dried tomatoes; then tossed with balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil makes a deliciously light salad.
While recently shopping, I came across a new product from Near East called Basil & Herb Pearled Couscous. I love couscous, but my little one isn't fond of it.
I think the reason is because it's too small and she has a hard time putting it onto the fork and refuses to eat her dinner with a spoon. "I'm 10 now Mom, not a baby!".
Anyway, I thought since this was more like a pasta, she might eat it if I prepared it a little differently and came up with this simple Basil Pearled Couscous with Sun Dried Tomatoes salad.
