  1. Combine Campbell’s Vegetable Broth, couscous, chili powder and salt in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high for 3 1/2 minutes. Fluff with fork and set aside to cool slightly. (Alternatively, bring broth to boil in pot and stir in couscous, chili powder and salt. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes until the broth has been absorbed.)
  2. Stir in olive oil, black beans, corn, bell pepper and green onions.
  3. Serve at room temperature or keep covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.  

Recipe Tips

  • Add 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime or lemon juice for an added tangy flavour boost. Control how spicy the dish is by increasing or decreasing the amount of chili powder.
  • Quinoa, cauliflower, or lentils can be used instead of couscous if a gluten-free recipe is desired.
  • Drizzle any dressing on top, such as balsamic vinegar or yogurt dressings.
  • Adding other greens, like cucumber, celery or broccoli, will also add texture and crunch to the dish.
  • If planning to garnish the salad, adding roasted almonds or toasted pine nuts can bring in the colour, taste and texture.
  • If you're not aiming for the dish to be vegetarian, using chicken broth and adding grilled chicken will elevate the dish even more.
