Couscous With Bacon And Croutons of Goat Cheese With Basil OilO MEU TEMPERO
It's true what they say: Bacon does make everything taste better, including this couscous salad. Besides bacon, the couscous is combined with bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, and fresh goat cheese in a serving dish and then garnished with fresh basil leaves and croutons made by toasting rustic bread pieces with basil oil and toasting to a golden crisp. It's a wonderful dish all on its own, but would also be terrific as an accompaniment to grilled meat, poultry, or fish.
- Put basil and olive oil in a blender and grind.
- Place the couscous in a bowl of boiling water, along with a pinch of salt and basil olive oil.
- When the water is completely absorbed separate the grains with a fork and sprinkle with lemon juice.
