Couscous salad

With it being summertime and having a small air conditioner cooking it not an option. Unless its outside on the BBQ. Although when the hubs is at work its not an option. I tend to choose vegetarian options which require not much cooking such as having hummus and tzatziki with vegetables. I also added a couscous salad to it. I know, the myth is that you need to have meat as a source of protein though in this case its provided by vegetarian sources. Not only is it easier to digest but lighter on the tummy. To make the couscous salad, you'll need: half a lemon 1/4 cup of medium couscous 1/2 cup of water 1 large tomato 1 small cucumber or half an english cucumber 2 green onions 1 cup of parsley 1/4 cup of mint 2 tablespoons of olive oil salt and pepper Boil 1/2 cup of water remove it from the stove add in the 1/4 cup of couscous. Remove from burner and cover for 5 minutes. Finely chop the parsley and the fresh mint. Dice the cucumber and the two green onions.
