  • 1 cup pearl couscous, dry
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella pearls
  • 15 oz can corn
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • fresh basil


  1. Start by cooking the couscous according to the package instructions.
  2. Next drain & rinse the canned corn.  Add the olive oil and rinsed corn to a pan on the stove over medium to high heat.  Add salt and pepper and sauté until the corn is roasted and nicely browned.  A tip here is to not mix the corn around too much!
  3. Remove the couscous and the corn from the heat and let cool completely.  You can place in the fridge to speed up the process.
  4. Next halve the cherry tomatoes and cut the avocado into cubes.
  5. Add the couscous, roasted corn, halved tomatoes, avocado cubes, mozzarella pearls, and white balsamic vinaigrette to a large mixing bowl.  Mix until combined evenly.  Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with fresh basil.
  6. Let sit in the fridge to cool before serving and enjoy!
