recipe: Couscous with Tuna Salad

Posted on Mar 20 2014 - 4:00pm by The Wife

Made this a while back when there was nothing much left at home to eat other than these ingredients sitting around at home. What do you do? Find something as a base, in this case I used couscous because they are so quick to prepare and throw everything into a salad bowl.
Healthy couscous tuna spinach salad To be honest I had no idea how the outcome will be. I simply added a little bite of this, tasted then a little bite of that, fine tuning the taste till I find the perfect combination! You may not think that these ingredients can’t get along but they do! Sometimes I am glad we started this blog also because we try so many things and sometimes we simply forget what we made. So this food blog kinda helps us to keep a record of our past cooking!
