Ingredients

  • 1 box (3.2 oz) Betty Crocker™ Cucumber Couscous Suddenly Deli Salad Starter Kit

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Top your finished couscous and cucumber salad with chopped fresh parsley or basil for a pretty presentation.
  • tip 2
    Cherry tomatoes are a great choice all year round, but if you have fresh, ripe summer tomatoes, feel free to dice them and use as a substitute for the cherry tomatoes.
  • tip 3
    We tested this Cucumber Couscous Salad recipe with skin-on cucumber, which adds color and extra crunch. If you dislike the texture of the skin, feel free to peel the cucumber before chopping.
