This is light and refreshing, perfect for a summer day. Original recipe found on Our Tunisian Table.
Tunisian Cucumber Salad
Easy, light and refreshing.
Combine lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil in small bowl and mix.
In larger bowl place tomatoes, onion, cucumber, parsley, and mint. Pour liquid mix on top. Add olives-optional and salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with fish or chicken. This is a flavorful dish and could be eaten alone as well. Original recipe found in Cooking Light.
Cherry and Leek Couscous
Bring water to boil in small saucepan. Add couscous and cherries. Cover, reduce heat and cook for 12 minutes. All liquid should be absorbed.
Place couscous in bowl.
Heat olive oil and saute the leeks. Should take about 5 minutes.
Add vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper to bowl. Add toasted walnuts. Mix well and serve.
For the leeks I cut off the tops and bottom. Slice in half and open the leek up and wash the layers. There is dirt that is in between and I have found this is the easiest way to clean.
