This delicious and easy Couscous Chicken Salad is made with pearl couscous, chicken, lots of veggies, and a bunch of flavor! It’s great to eat warm for dinner and again the next day cold for lunch.
I made this INCREDIBLE Israeli Couscous Chicken Salad for dinner last night, if I do say so myself, but it wasn’t like I didn’t have any help.
And Mr. 365 said this was “the best dinner you’ve made in a long time.”
I have a blog.
Cooking and baking for the family is what I now do.
This is the “best dinner in a long time”.
Maybe I should have asked him to clarify because I have been cooking dinner quite regularly and he has been eating and hasn’t been complaining about them.
I don’t know, he’s funny like that.
My daughters and I were watching ‘Giada at Home’ on the Food Network channel when my oldest asked if I could make one of the recipes for dinner.
It was this Israeli Couscous Salad with Smoked Paprika and it looked so incredibly yummy!
So, here’s my version of Giada’s ~ healthy, some added protein to make it a full course dinner and pretty easy to boot!

I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and this Summer Israeli Couscous Chicken Salad earned a whopping 4 rolling pins!
The family LOVED it and definitely want me to add it to our regular menu.
It was so incredibly tasty that I really couldn’t stop eating it and was really bummed when my daughter and the Mr. got to it before I did for lunch the next day.
I’m really thinking I’m going to have to make this again next week, but I’m actually wanting some right now.
I’ll try it with quinoa when i make it next and see how it goes. I’ll let you know.
