 After meeting with TJ's dietician, we're going to have to change our eating habits a bit! One of my favorite summer salads is tabouli, which is an excellent light source of grain and vegetable. Try it - you'll like it!

1 pkg. couscous, cooked according to package directions
2 packages fresh mint, chopped
1/2 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 white onion, chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
drizzle or two of olive oil (to prevent sticky clumps)
lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste

Mix all together in a big bowl and refrigerate overnight. The lemon juice just MAKES this dish, and really highlights the flavors of the herbs so don't be afraid to be generous with the juice! This dish is really beautiful served in hollowed-out tomatoes or peppers and, as I said before, is a perfect summer dish - flavorful and light.
