The other recipe

I mentioned that we invented two new recipes Tuesday. The other one is:

Asparagus Couscous Salad

1 cup whole wheat couscous

2 cups boiling water

1 ½ cup asparagus – chopped and steamed

½ cup diced dried apricots

½ cup chopped red pepper

3 TLB chopped chives

2 TLB chopped parsley

We used one of our standard vinaigrettes, with lemon juice and we would have used garlic, except I was out of it. This makes a very mild flavoured salad, that would be best eaten early on in the week because I don't think the gentle flavour of the asparagus would keep well.
