Strawberry Avocado Couscous Salad

This might be one of my most favorite meals.  It is SO delicious!  Fresh, crispy and satisfying.  It’s definitely perfect for a summer day, or cookout, but I eat it at any time of the year.

I had never tried couscous before, and bought it on a whim.  I’m so glad I did because it’s now my favorite!  This recipe is super easy to make, and honestly you’ll be wanting more after the first bite.
