Mediterranean Couscous Recipe

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup prepared Couscous
  • 8 whole pitted dates, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 TBS fresh mint, chopped
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 TBS red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup feta
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Instructions

In a big bowl add the prepared couscous. Mix in all the additional ingredients.

Taste and add any additional salt or freshly cracked black pepper. (Remember that feta can be pretty salty so you might not need salt.)

Serve with a side of Tzatziki sauce and greek chicken kabobs.

Notes

To keep the couscous from clumping when you prepare it, be sure to stir vigorously while adding the couscous to the boiling water. Continue to stir as the couscous soaks up the water.
