Eating Clean made Easy!

I have been making a lot of salads lately. Here’s a delightful and refreshing one that I made recently.  The lime juice adds a nice zing and a hint of freshness to the couscous.

Ingredients:
(for 2 large servings)
3 cups cooked couscous
1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped into cubes
1 cup of cooked black beans (I used half a can of beans after draining and rinsing)
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped into small pieces
2-3 scallions, chopped
4-5 chives, minced

For the dressing:
2 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 3 limes
1/2 tbsp agave
3/4 tsp roasted cumin powder
Salt, Pepper and spices to taste

Method:
Cook the couscous according to the instructions on the packet. Fluff it up with a fork after cooking and let it cool.

Throw the couscous along with the rest of the salad ingredients into a large bowl.
Add all the ingredients for the dressing into a small bowl and mix well. Pour the dressing over the salad and mix well.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Sprinkle with chives before serving. Eat clean!
