Kale and Toasted Almond Couscous Salad

Toss 

-One cup of cooked couscous (quinoa is a decent replacement if couscous isn’t your thing)
-Very finely sliced raw kale (curly or leafy)
-Chopped cucumber

Drizzle

Olive oil, lots of freshly squeezed lemon juice, a tiny tiny bit of honey, salt and pepper.

Top

Flaked almonds, dry toasted in a frying pan*, drizzled with honey, sprinkled with sea salt, some fresh mint leaves and a light sprinkling of chia seeds

*Be sure to watch your toasting almonds like a hawk. It only takes 3 seconds for the almonds to go from perfectly golden to tragically burnt.
