Couscous and Herb Salad

I’m so exciting to be participating in The Secret Recipe Club this month.

It’s my first month and it was so much fun!  What is The Secret Recipe Club? It’s an awesome way to not only find but share new blogs. Each month, one member is assigned to another member from their group secretly (hence the name). That person selects a recipe (or more) to make, photograph, and then will draft up a blog post. Everyone in the group posts on the same Monday together and gets to see who had their blog and what recipe(s) they chose. It’s such a fun experience and it’s a great way to get new followers, too. There are always new blogs to discover and our club has plenty to offer! If you are interested in joining or want to learn more, visit The Secret Recipe Club’s website.

I was assigned Manu’s fabulous blog, Manu’s Menu.  Her site is full of delicious recipes!  I wanted to try so many of them but I chose to make the Couscous and Herb Salad.  I chose this recipe because I love making salads on Sunday that I can pack for lunch all week and this was the perfect recipe!  It tastes fabulous and was super easy to make.
