Recipe: Hot Couscous Salad

Salads with aromatic herbs
July 02, 2009

Corleone Tomato & Jalapeno JaloroThis in the picture is my first tomato ever, a Corleone Tomato harvested from my rooftop pots.
I harvested also a Jalapeno Jaloro: these chili peppers are big, fleshy, tasty and mild... I'm really enjoing them.


I added a bunch of basil and prepared this couscous salad.
