Tasty Tuesday ~ Caesar Couscous

I enjoy Tasty Tuesday with Jen and thought it would be a good opportunity to share an easy side dish recipe with you!

I just love the versatility of couscous!  Do you cook with it?  It's actually a very small pasta and cooks up in as little as 5 minutes.  I buy boxes of whole wheat couscous at Trader Joe's, but you can find it in most grocery stores in the pasta aisle.

I found this recipe in a magazine several years ago, saved it, and finally made it a few months ago.  I enjoyed it and will probably serve it up a few times this year!

Caesar Couscous

1 box (10 oz) couscous, cooked according to package directions
2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup Caesar dressing
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Combine ingredients in a large bowl, and serve.
Very simple, but a nice change from the usual salad!  What are you cooking up today?  Link up your recipes for Tasty Tuesday at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam!

Have a tasty day friends!  :)


  1. Thanks for the recipe Lisa! I used to make couscous more often and I've told myself I need to get back into it again. I've had 2 boxes sitting in my pantry for a couple months now waiting for a new and different twist. This is it! Thanks!

  2. Yum! I adore couscous, and that sounds delicious!

  3. What a good idea, to put Couscous in with a Caesar salad. I think I might be making this for our next church fellowship meal....thanks, Lisa!

  4. This sounds yummy! I admit that I've never had coucous but pasta that cooks fast - yeah!! :D

    Have a great day!
