RE: Garden Cous-sous and Black bean Salad


The temperature was 20 degrees (-6 Celsius) and the wind chill was 0 (-17
Celsius) when I came to work in  mid-western USA this morning. Probably far
from the coldest people on this list, but cold just the same. 

When can I come visit?

		We haven't had many recipes for a while so, for those of us
who are 
		currently enjoying summer, here is my favorite easy to
prepare bean salad.

		Garden Cous-sous and Black bean Salad

		1 cup uncooked couscous
		2 cups cooked black beans
		1 stalk celery
		1 small red pepper
		2 medium tomatoes, diced
		1/2 cup chopped green olives
		1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
		2 green onions, finely sliced
		1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
		salt and pepper to taste

		Pour couscous in medium heat-proof bowl. Bring 2 cups water
to a boil and 
		pour over couscous. Cover and let stand 15 minutes, then
fluff with a fork 
		and allow to cool to room temperature.
		Transfer coucous to large boil. Add remaining ingredients
and toss to mix. 
		Serve at room temperature, or chilled.
