Mango Couscous Salad

This is a quick lunch I whipped up the other day. I really wanted something with mangoes in it but needed it to be quick and easy because I had other things to get to. I think this would pack really well for a boxed lunch at work or school as well. So easy to just have ready and tasty too! Very filling, hurray for couscous!

  • 1/2 cup uncooked couscous
  • 1 pkg chicken oxo
  • 1 mango, peeled and cubed
  • juice of 2 lime wedges
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  1. Combine the chicken oxo and couscous in a heat proof measuring cup. Add 3/4 cup boiling water and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to sit atleast 5 minutes.
  2. Combine the mango, green onion, lime juice, and soy sauce in a large bowl. Once the couscous is done sitting, add the couscous to the mango mixture. Mix thoroughly, serve!

This makes two lovely lunch servings. Each serving contains 182 calories, .5 grams of fat, and 3.6 grams of fibre. If you skip the chicken oxo ingredient this is a tasty vegetarian dish as well! A variation of this with strawberries instead of mangoes is sooo delicious. This can also be a great side dish for a tropical themed dinner.
