Couscous Shrimp Salad

is one of my favorite meal! This salad made with easy to prepare couscous and crunchy veggies with a hit of shrimps! All tossed in a fresh Vinaigrette and some herbs for extra flavour.

Is this a salad or side dish? Sort of both! Some people served it as a side dish, but I eat it as a main course. It’s room temperature when you make it, bur leftovers can be eaten cold. It is good warm and cold. So, no problem when you have leftover and just keep it in the fridge.
