Karista's Kitchen Salad vegetarian

Mediterranean Couscous Salad

Mediterranean Cous Cous Salad from Karista's Kitchen

Last June I decided it was high time I got out-and-about my local area and begin meeting some of my fellow food bloggers and food writers.  After all, I can’t just hang out with my chicken girls all the time. 😉

While attending various food and blogging events, I met Alyssa from Everyday Maven.  A lovely, creative and intelligent young woman who is as passionate about healthy and delicious food as I am.

Today, I am honored to guest post at Everyday Maven.  This Mediterranean Couscous Salad is one of my favorite spring and summer salads, filled with pure deliciousness and enticing flavors.  Once you take a bite, you’ll hear spring and summer calling.

Thank you Alyssa for the pleasure of guest posting at Everyday Maven.  Head on over and check out Everyday Maven for this recipe and many more mouth-watering nutritious and delectable dishes.

Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,

Karista

    I love that you included feta cheese – and I’m sure adding mint brings a nice pop of flavor. Look delicious —

      Bill, the mint is my favorite ingredient in this salad. I always add extra! It does give it that extra pop of flavor. 🙂

    What a terrific, delicious guest post, Karista! I’m craving this lovely couscous salad now – it definitely sings of spring and summer. I can see why it’s a favorite in your family! I’ll be making it soon (and hoping yesterday’s sun returns). 🙂

      Thank you Hannah! I too was hoping for yesterday’s sunshine. It was glorious! Apparently it worked so hard yesterday, the sun decided to take the day off again. 🙁

    I’m looking forward to reading your guest post, Karista! I need to get more involved with our local bloggers here, too! It’s more fun being part of a local community in addition to the world-wide one we have here, isn’t it? xx

      I so enjoy meeting local bloggers. I completely adore several of these lovely and talented bloggers and now count them as friends. 🙂 Now if I could just meet up with my world wide blogging friends that would be so fabulous!! First stop Smidge’s Kitchen and then on to dine with Frugal. 🙂
