Couscous Salad

A refreshing Couscous Salad made by a local gourmet restaurant and caterer, Noujaim’s Bistro. This Mediterranean-style salad is packed with raisins, carrots and other fresh ingredients. Find it available served by the pound in our deli.

What is couscous? It isn’t a grain nor a seed, in fact, it is a starch. It’s a form of “pasta” made from a mixture of water and semolina flour. This mix gets rolled into very tiny pearls, which then grow slightly in size when cooked in water. Often in the Northern Africa or Middle Eastern region you will find this served as the main base to a dish, rather than a side.

A quote from George Noujaim, owner of Noujaim’s Bistro:

Set in the heart of Winsted, CT is the home of Noujaim’s Bistro. 

Inside the main dining room you will find local artist’s creations, treasures from Lebanon, and mouth watering dishes your taste buds will be upset you didn’t know about earlier. 

When you dine with us you will find that every nibble is packed with flavor, passion, love, and a story. 

Noujaim’s is the story about my dream turned reality to share my Lebanese heritage and love of cooking with the rest of the world one bite at a time.
