Recipe

There is this amazing sandwich shop near my house that makes the most delicious sandwiches and salads, and one of my favorite things they make is a curried couscous and cauliflower salad with raisins. It's seriously good and I always am tempted to bring home a whole tub of it for quick lunches. However I suspect that although tasty, it's packed with way too much oil to make it diet friendly. Lately I have been working on my own version using yogurt to replace the oil and packing in some extra veggies. I have finally settled on a version I like and am excited to share it today. It's delicious hot or cold and will last for a few days in the fridge.

    I really loved the flavor of the sauce in this recipe and it was really easy to put together. I substituted broccoli for the cauliflower. Really tasty!
