If you wish to substitute butter for oil, use 1 1/4 cup butter for 1 cup oil.

When recipes call for oil without specifying the kind, it means polyunsaturated oil. When recipes call for butter, use a butter high in polyunsaturated.

Chilled Couscous Vegetable Salad

Photo of Chilled Couscous Vegetable Salad

Very light yet flavorful summer salad. It was very easy to prepare, and the leftover was still tasty the next day. I used whole wheat couscous, toasted the frozen corn in the pan for about 5 minutes, which really enhanced the flavor of the corn. I used cherry tomatoes from our backyard. We had it for supper, simply delicious, especially good on a hot summer day.
