Pesto Pearl Couscous Salad
Pearled couscous, tomatoes, mixed greens and mozzarella pearls get tossed together in a simple pesto dressing to make this pearl couscous salad. It comes together in just 30 minutes, and is such a simple weeknight meal to add to your weekly prep!
This salad just screams spring and gets me excited for the warmer months. (Lets just pretend I don’t live in Florida where its hot all year round)
You can serve this dish cold or at room temperature. I love it on its own since the beans add some protein, but if you needed to bulk up the protein it would pair so well with some baked salmon.
It’s truly so easy to whip up, and made with just a few simple ingredients.
