Couscous With Bacon And Croutons of Goat Cheese With Basil Oil

Add to Meal Planner


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.


  • 150 couscous (grs of)
  • 200 mL boiling water
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves
  • extra virgin olive oil (to taste)
  • 70 bacon strips (grs of)
  • 1/4 sweet pepper (green, diced)
  • 1/4 sweet pepper (diced)
  • 10 cherry tomatoes (whole)
  • 1 slice Alentejo bread (trimmed and diced)
  • 1 goat cheese (small, diced)
  • dried oregano (to taste)
