Try a different grain now and then. Couscous (koos koos) is a ricelike product made from durum wheat. It is easy to prepare for a quick summertime meal. Try whole-wheat couscous if you find it at the grocery store.


  • 2 c. couscous, cooked (follow instructions on package)
  • 2 c. diced cucumber
  • 1 c. seeded and diced tomato
  • 1/4 c. chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tsp. dried dill weed
  • 1/2 c. Italian low-fat salad dressing


Prepare couscous and let it chill. Rinse vegetables thoroughly with water. Chop or dice vegetables as indicated. Toss together ingredients in a large bowl, adding the salad dressing last. Chill for at least one hour and serve.

Makes about 10 servings (1/2 cup each).
