Chicken Salad with Olive Vinaigrette Recipes

Chicken Salad with Olive Vinaigrette

Israeli couscous is pasta with bead-sized grains that are much larger than those of regular couscous. It‘s similar to barley in size and texture, but it cooks more quickly, in just 15 minutes.

Nutrition Tip: Olives deliver big flavor, yet they’re relatively low in calories (one serving of five kalamata olives contains about 25 calories). The olive bar at some supermarkets typically offers a variety, so try different types to mix things up.
