Couscous Salad with Raw Veggies

For those of us trying to eat more raw foods, this is a quick and easy one that doesn't take long to prepare and is actually quite yummy and filling. If you're like me and have trouble finding healthy foods that are filling, this one is. I love it now.

1 Cup of Water
1 Cup of Couscous
3 Tbsp Olive Oil (I sometimes use flaxseed oil or half of each)
3 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp Braggs Amino Acids (soy sauce substitute - this is optional or you can just salt it)
Juice and Zest of one Lime
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 Can of Corn (slightly drained - some of the water adds a nice flavor)
1 Beefstake Tomato diced
1 Red Bell Pepper diced
1 small cucumber diced
1/2 small yellow squash diced
1 small onion diced
2 Cups of Spinach somewhat shredded or torn
1 Small handful of Cilantro

Bring water to a boil. Take water off heat and pour couscous in. Fluff with a fork and then transfer to a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, take next five ingredients and mix together well, then pour over couscous to keep it from sticking and getting too dry. Pour can of corn in and the remaining ingredients. Toss until well blended. This is a super healthy, light, and filling meal by itself. Enjoy.
