  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 4 ears of grilled corn on the cob (kernels removed)
  • 6 scallions, sliced thinly
  • ½ dry pint grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • coarse sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill. Remove husks and silks from corn. Grill corn on medium heat 15-20 minutes turning midway through. Allow corn to cool thoroughly and then using a knife slice off the kernels from the cobs. Set kernels aside.
  2. Add chicken broth and grilled corn kernels to a pot, cover and bring to a boil. Remove pot from heat, add couscous, stir and cover. Allow couscous to sit for 5 minutes and then fluff with a fork until fluffy and all clumps are removed. Add scallions, tomatoes and parsley and gently mix. In a separate bowl, prepare dressing by mixing fresh lime juice, canola oil, salt and pepper – mix thoroughly and then dress salad.
