Last week Tuesday we went to a potluck at West Valley Christian Fellowship, the church we attend here.  Lots of good food and fellowship, a chance to get acquainted with people.  I brought a small crockpot full of barbecued, skinless, boneless chicken thighs.  That's easy to prepare and tastes delicious, and sometimes there's not enough meat dishes at one of these suppers.

Tonight we are going to "Meatless Mondays," a vegetarian potluck here at the village.  I've prepared a Couscous Salad:

Here's the recipe:


Prepare 1 cup of couscous, according to directions on package.

In a large bowl place:
1 cup of zucchini, cut into 1/4" pieces (I like to use English cucumber)
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4" pieces (any colour bell pepper)
1/2 cup chopped red onion
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup broccoli florets, cut small, steamed for 1 minute in microwave
1 medium tomato, cut up
1/2 cup low fat Italian dressing

Stir all these ingredients together until well blended.
Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley or basil.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Serves 6.

I'm looking forward to tasting the other entrées that people bring to this potluck.
