Thankful {things I love} Thursday...

To help deal with the hot, humid weather we've been experiencing this Summer,
we've kept our meals light.  Curried couscous salad , hummus on crisp bread with fresh sliced tomatoes and cucumber is quick and easy to prepare, delicious and good for you ♥
It's so versatile that you can throw in anything you like.
It makes a wonderful lunch, and for more of a  dinner I add a cup of chickpeas and hard boiled egg.
 1 cup of whole wheat couscous (cook according to package directions)
1/4 small head red cabbage, julienned
1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves
handful of dried cranberries (or raisins)
handful of cashews
*Fluff couscous with a fork.  Add cabbage, spinach, cranberries and cashews and toss.
Dressing
1 1/2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 TBSP curry powder
salt & pepper to taste
*Mix and pour dressing over salad.  Toss and serve warm.
Serves 2 dinner or 4 lunch.
The greatest delight
the fields and woods minister
is the suggestion of an occult relation
between man  and the vegetable.
I am not alone
and unacknowledged.
They nod to me
and I
to them.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

I am Thankful to live within walking distance to a wonderful Farmer's Market where we can pick up ingredients for dinner ♥
