Lemony Shrimp & Couscous Salad

Lemony Shrimp & Couscous Salad
1 1/2 cups water
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup uncooked couscous
1 1/2 cups diced plum tomatoes
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup low-salt chicken broth
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add shrimp; cook 3 minutes. Drain shrimp in a colander over a bowl, reserving cooking liquid. Add couscous to reserved cooking liquid. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Combine couscous, shrimp, tomatoes, green onions, and basil in a large bowl. Combine broth, lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper. Pour dressing over salad; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cheese.

NOTE : Although raw, fresh shrimp, is called for, you can buy it cooked. Just skip the cooking step; use 1 1/2 cups boiling water for the couscous.

This sounds great, Mish, thanks!

Now if it would just stop snowing and warm up it can be salad weather again!

Hi PA, thanks.
Posted this 'cause some folks on the site mentioned they wanted to shed a few pounds, & this looked like a nice light dish. I may team it up with some Miso soup. Since I have some precooked shrimp & couscous, & it will be in the 80s here this week (don't shoot me), wanted to give it a try.
