Hi friends, it’s Amy from A Cup Full of Sass back to share another recipe with you. This healthy Black Bean and Couscous Salad is the perfect summer recipe. I use whole wheat Couscous with organic black beans and organic corn to make it super healthy. This recipe would also be great on a whole wheat tortilla shell. It’s both filling and delicious. Not to mention it’s super easy and fast to make.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Couscous takes only five minutes to prepare and works well as a side dish in place of rice, pasta or potatoes. Or make it into a salad like I did in this recipe.

I love using fresh garden vegetables in my recipes. If you have a garden, use your cherry tomatoes and spinach from it. They are the best!

You could also serve this as a side dish with grilled lime chicken or fish to have a healthy delicious meal. Can you say yum?!
