Oriental couscous salad {advertising}

An oriental couscous salad is a great side dish.

In today’s recipe I was inspired a bit of magnetic jewelry by Energetix and made an oriental couscous salad.

The couscous is refined with a few lentils, cucumber, tomato and pomegranate. Add to that a little mint and parsley and ready is the delicious salad. Whether you make as side or as a main course. This vegetarian salad tastes even meat lovers.

The inspiration for this delicious salad, the great magnetic jewelry by Energetix, can be found on www.energetix-magnetschmuck.online. There you can view the current collection and in the shop also purchased with free shipping to most countries.

As ground I took HORI Laminat, which was kindly provided by casando.de.
