Mediterranean Roasted Veggie Salad with Pearl Couscous

Father’s Day. Graduation parties. Cookouts with friends. Family picnics at the beach. You know the drill…bring a dish to share! Well, the roasted veggie salad I’m making today is one we turn to time and time again. Filled with rich flavors, I dare you to contain yourself to just one helping!

A few other things that make this the perfect summer salad:

  • It’s mayo free so will hold up outside in warm temps.
  • Tastes just as good at room temp as it does chilled, if not better!
  • Pairs well with traditional cookout entrees: beef, chicken, pork and fish.
  • Makes a fantastic “Meatless Monday” or vegetarian meal on it’s own!
