Frugal Foodie – Leftover Wine Couscous Salad

This weekend my roommates and I decided to host a wine tasting.  We got together with friends and hunted for the best under $12 bottle of wine.  Some were good, some were terrible but in the end we had lots of leftover wine.

In order to use it up, I scoured the Internet for great leftover wine recipes.  After a few minutes of searching I came across this recipe for a white wine vinaigrette. Having not grocery shopped in a few days, my cupboards were a bit bare.  I decided that the  best use for this vinaigrette would be over a couscous salad.

I raided my crisper and chopped up a bunch veggies to make a quick and easy dinner.  All in all a nice way to re-purpose some leftovers.
