Trader Joe's Couscous Salad

Another lunch report... I can't get enough of Trader Joe's Couscous Salad. It has cold couscous flavored with lime juice and basil, sun-dried tomatoes, cippollini onions (small, sweet onions), cherry tomatoes, dried currants, and arugula.

I can't even begin to expound on how much I love arugula. I can't wait to plant it and have a little bit with chicken or fish. It's peppery and slightly bitter. D. would call it "weedy". When it's fresh, the crunch is amazing. It adds a nice kick to salads or a nice garnish to meat or fish. With this couscous, it contrasts nicely with the sweet and sour of the onions, tomatoes, and lime.

It's $3.39 for a 10 oz. box. It's very light, but the couscous is filling enough to make it a meal. TJ's is full of good pre-made food. I usually have a mini-pizza or a salad. Cheaper than going out, more convenient than cooking.

They have discontinued the couscous salad! :( I got this from TJs:

Although the Couscous has been discontinued, at times because of high demand we have actually seen discontinued items make their way back on our shelves. So we will be sure to forward your comments and request to bring this product back to our Buying Department and that will be taken into future consideration.

Thanks for shopping with us at Trader Joe's!!
