    This healthy pearl couscous salad is great when family and friends are spontaneously staying for dinner at a party, but it's also a hit as a quick weekday lunch. You can easily keep it in the fridge for a few days and then take it with you in a lunch box. Easy, quick and full of healthy nutrients. That's how we want to see it of course!
