What I really like to have for lunch is a salad and this spicy vegan couscous salad hits the spot every time. But if I don’t have a lunch break that is long enough, I have to prepare it in advance. So, waking up early in the morning or even the night before are perfect opportunities to do a salad in a jar. If you want to have a beautiful and nutritious treat you really need to try this recipe.
The only thing that requires cooking in this one is the couscous – and that’s so easy. Different types of couscous cook differently – so just follow the instructions on the package. Usually, it varies between 2 and 10 minutes. All the other ingredients are fresh and easy to use.
