Turkish Couscous Salad

I saw many different recipes when I search for couscous salad online. Mostly, what I see was actually Kisir. Well, I do not know if that is what they call as couscous in different countries but what we make Kisir with is actually way different than what we call couscous. We use Bulghur which made from wheat. On the opposite, couscous is actually same with pasta. And in this recipe couscous you can find as Pearl Couscous. They are selling these at Walmart and other stores with rices and pastas. 

I love to cook simple recipes with you! This is one of them. We have couple simple ingredients and need very short time to prepare this delicious food. 

This recipe is perfect as a side dish, appetizer, salad, pasta and good option for the ones who are vegetarian!
