Hello Simply Scratch readers!
I want to start out by thanking Laurie for asking me to guest post this week while she’s away. I’ve been a big fan of hers for a while, it’s hard not to be! Her beautiful photography and unique recipes keep me intrigued and constantly checking to see what she’s going to come up with next.
Her “simply scratch” mentality is one that I try and live by as well. That wasn’t always true, like Laurie, I started with a box of brownies too! Everyone has to start somewhere and although I grew up with a mom who is an excellent cook and relatives who know how to whip up delicious meals with a few simple fresh ingredients, I had no idea how to replicate what I had always seen growing up. Just as Laurie did, I devoted my time to learning how to cook from scratch.
Through my “quest to conquer home cooked deliciousness” on my food blog Sprinkles of Parsley, I’ve learned that cooking is far easier than I ever thought it could be. With a few simple steps, and basic fresh ingredients, you can create a far healthier and delicious meal than anything you can buy already prepared for you. Similar to Laurie’s blogging style, our step-by-step pictures takes the guess work right out for you- what you see, is what you get, making learning how to cook from scratch that much easier!
Today’s post was inspired by the warm spring weather we’re starting to get here in Connecticut . BBQ-ing is officially on my mind! You can never have enough summer salad recipes to serve at a BBQ or bring as a potluck dish. I felt it was time to experiment with a new recipe- and I’m so happy I did! This Couscous Summer Salad with Lime Vinaigrette is light, fresh, and flavorful. Made with fresh vegetables, light couscous and a great lime vinaigrette, this dish does not lack in flavor.
Not only is the combination of flavors just right, but it only requires a few minutes to prepare. Just cook your couscous, prepare your fresh vegetables, whisk together the vinaigrette and you have a delicious, healthy dish made from scratch in no time. This quick and easy BBQ side is a great recipe to add to your rotation of summer salad favorites. Hope you enjoy it!
Start with zesting your lime.
