We eat a fair amount of salads in our house and I’m always looking for ways to change them up, to make them more interesting than say, lettuce, tomato, radish and cucumbers. This Gluten-Free Couscous Salad with Ripe Olives and Roasted Vegetables is a great addition to have in your repitoire.

While you can certainly enjoy this salad any time of year, it’s perfect when the weather is warm and makes a terrific side dish to burgers, hot dogs, chicken or barbecue; personally, I think it’s a meal all on its own – and it’s both vegetarian as well as vegan.

The coucous and vegetables are prepared ahead and cooled, so the rest of the salad comes together in under 20-minutes. Simply add a bit of red wine vinaigerette, fresh herbs, salt, pepper, black olives and capers and you have one of our favorite ‘must make recipes’ of the season – and no one will miss the gluten!

  1. Great salad! I love all the roasted veggies, and I may even be able to hide zucchini in it – Lenny does not like the summer squash and I do love it, and always try to add it somewhere!
