I was a the store the other day and I saw endive. I wasn’t sure what it is because I’ve never tried it. But I thought I’ll buy it and I’ll figure it out something —> like always. So after couple of days I thought I have to do something with my endive. Mediterranean couscous salad came to my mind.

I checked the endive leaves and I realized they are sturdy and I thought it will be easy to stuff something in it. I looked around and I’ve decided to go with couscous, cucumber, tomato and Mediterranean herbs. I just didn’t have olives at home so I didn’t add it. But you can do this. I’m just not a huge fan of them.

I had lots of fresh parsley at home and it perfectly suited my salad. So much flavor from parsley, red onion, herbs like basil, rosemary and Italian seasoning . Mediterranean couscous salad is delicious, healthy and vegetarian. Perfect for side dish at dinner time or a party when guests can grab easily one endive leaf. It is great also for light lunch any day of the week.

  1. These look perfect for a party! Great combination of flavors – sounds like something I would make. Although I have to substitute quinoa because I am gluten free :(.
