  • 1 cup uncooked whole-wheat couscous
  • 0.5 english cucumber, peeled, sliced and quartered
  • 1 cup heirloom cherry tomatoes, cut in halves or quarters
  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 0.5 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 0.5 lemon, juiced
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. In a medium sauce pot, combine 1 cup of whole wheat cous cous with 1 cup of water.  Bring to a boil, cover and remove from heat.  Let sit for 5 minutes then fluff with a fork.  If serving right away chill cous cous in the freezer, or let it come to room temperature.
  2. In a large glass bowl, combine chilled cous cous, tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley and feta cheese.  Mix together.  Lastly, add olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Give everything a final toss.  The great thing about this salad is it is still versatile - you can make this ahead of time, make a big batch for lunches, or eat right away!  Enjoy!
