Quick Food: Red and yellow salad by Majnouna Quick Food: Red and yellow salad by Majnouna
:pointl: Check out the book!

This was originally a quinoa salad, but I can't stomach quinoa since I learned this inconvenient truth, so I tried it with couscous and it turned out every bit as delicious. The bell peppers contribute the dominant flavor, while the couscous or whatever you use in its place is there for texture, so you can try various alternatives: If you're gluten-intolerant you can use rice or maybe even millet for an equally tasty result.

I make this one with rice, and my husband loves it to pieces! He can eat the whole bowl by himself.

it's because we don't have feta in the philippines and were out of honey

Ok, you can use goat cheese if available, or any kind of crumbly cheese that's a bit sour, but you can also just omit it. Instead of honey just use a bit of sugar to give the dressing its sweet-sour taste.

I need to know why you want to replace them before I can answer.

This looks delicious! I'd have to substitute the cheese (gotta use an alternative) other than that, it sounds amazing :)

May I ask what a cup in normal units would be? Because my cups here range from around 200 ml to over 500.

:iconmajnouna:
Majnouna Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013  Professional General Artist
240ml in the US, 250 in the UK :) As the difference is hardly noticeable in most recipes (you're rarely asked for more than 4 cups of something), 250 is the more convenient number to remember.

I made your Red & Yellow Salad for dinner last night, using couscous, dried cranberries, walnuts, etc., and it was delicious! I'm not the biggest feta cheese fan, but the salty tangyness of the cheese was really needed to balance out the sweetness of the dressing. What I really loved about the recipe is how easy it was for being such a yummy dish. Since I don't get home until 6:00 most evenings, I really appreciate recipes that are tasty, healthy, and quick to make. Thanks again for posting! :D

Brilliant, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! and that you were adventurous enough to try the feta with it :)
That's exactly the point of these recipes, to be easy for those who get home tired in the evening but don't want to be forced to eat junk :D

As a fun alternative, using a broth (eg chicken, beef, vegetable) instead of water when you cook your cous cous (or rice!) adds a bit of flavour too :aww:

True :) But in this case it would fall flat so personally I wouldn't bother.

Pfff... just read about the quinoa; same old filthy story! >~<"
Every time I look for something "ethnic" (cou-cous, tea and so on) I try to choice a fair-trade mark... It can't stop a corporation, but it could help some family!

You won't believe this, but I recently did something almost exactly like that! I was going for a picture recipe entirely without words, using symbols to depict actions instead (much simpler recipes were used) but I was stuck on drawing flour and baking powder differently.
Yours is much more awesome, though. Kudos!

ah.. I think I want to try this out sometime. But I have a question.. if I substitute it with rice, it has to be cooked first of course, right? (sounds quite obvious but I want to check ) :D
