yummy salad for lunch

I made a really yummy salad for lunch today, Mashallah! I baked a smoked salmon fillet and then let it cool. then I cooked some whole wheat cous cous and then let that cool. to the cous cous I added some of the smoked salmon (flaking it first), then some chopped tomatoes, bell peppers (capsicum),black olives, and cilantro (also called fresh coriander). then I drizzled on some lemon -extra virgin olive oil I got at the store and mixed it up. I made this last night to eat for lunch today and it was so yummy Mashallah!!

my knees are kind of sore today and it is a rest day so I have to be really really careful doing any squats tomorrow. I might skip squats for the time-being until they are no longer sore… we will see inshallah.

Oh Twizzle I feel terrible! I rarely check profiles, and finally found this gem of a blog today!

This reminds me of Turkish kisir and looks so healthy. It's made the same way, only no salmon, and flat leaf parsley, a true vegetarian salad....Sounds like your diet is going really well. Love you endlessly.

Salam alaikum--I'm so glad I just found your blog. I'm doing the weight loss thing myself except i'm doing weight watchers. Your salad looks so good, exactly like the kind of thing I would make. Congratulations for being so close to your goal!

Hi,
The Persian name of "sour grape" is "ghooreh". It is basically the grape before it gets ripe and sweet.
