Mediterranean Couscous Salad

Mediterranean Couscous Salad

Ingredients

Pearl Coucous (prepared according to package) 2 Cups
Sliced Kalamata Olives 1/2 Cup
Sliced Banana Peppers 1/2 Cup
Cherry Tomatoes 1 Cup
English Cucumber 1
Red Onion 1/2
Fresh Italian Parsley chopped 1/4 Cup

Dressing

Olive oil 1/4 Cup
Sherry Vinegar 1/4 Cup
Oregano Basil Herb Mix 1 Tablespoon
Garlic Cloves 3
Maple Syrup or Honey 1-2 Tablespoons
Fresh Lemon 1
Salt & Pepper
A lot of this salad is made from jarred ingredients so it is really easy to throw together. Leave out what you don’t like and add what you prefer! Feta cheese would be a great addition to this salad and it is still good the next day.

I made the Couscous the day before and stirred a little Olive Oil through it so it wouldn’t stick.  So it was so fast to throw together the next day.

  1. Make the dressing by mincing the Garlic and zesting and juicing the Lemon, blend or whisk the remaining ingredients together and whisk until it all comes together.  Set aside while you assemble the Salad.
  2. Add the cooked and cooled Couscous to a bowl.
  3. Dice the Cucumber and slice the Cherry Tomatoes in half, thinly slice the Red Onion and add to the Couscous.
  4. Add the Banana Peppers then run the Kalamata Olives under cold water before adding them.
  5. Finely dice the Parsley and toss into the Salad with the dressing and serve.
