broccoli salad & tomato couscous

i'm slightly obsessed with broccoli salad, we found really nice fresh, 'better than organic' broccoli at the farmers market this weekend, so i had to make some salad with it. (by better than organic, i mean that the farmer says they use NO fertilizer and NO spray, but its too expensive to be certified.. so they can't say organic).
i made the broccoli salad with some toasted pumpkin seeds, chopped onion and baconbits, the dressing was vegenaise, with a little sugar, a splash of apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper. i mix everything together and let it sit in the fridge for a while, then stir in the baconbits at the last minute. came out super delicious, i ate most of the 'leftovers' before they got to the fridge :) :)

the couscous is whole wheat couscous w/ fire roasted tomatoes.
-i fried up a little onion and walnuts, then i use the juice from the can of tomatoes, measure it out until you have enough liquid for the couscous (equal parts liquid to couscous). add the liquid in, then bring to a boil. stir in the couscous, remove from heat, let sit for five minutes. stir in the tomatoes that have been drained, some oregano, salt and pepper, maybe a little olive oil. done!
