Summer Couscous Salad

My neighbor is growing cucumbers and they have literally taken over her garden.  Almost daily, I find 2-3 beautiful cucumbers sitting by my back door.  I have gotten pretty creative using these up, and this couscous salad turned out to be one of my favorites.



Summer Couscous salad

1 box near east couscous, any flavor (I used the toasted pine nut)
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
handful of fresh garden herbs, minced
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Prepare the couscous according to package directions and let it cool.  Mix in the herbs, pine nuts, feta cheese and cucumber.  Mix to combine.  Serve cold or at room temperature.

I love this dish because it is a wonderful side next to grilled chicken or a meal in itself for a light dinner or lunch!

    We enjoyed the Couscous Salad here in the Netherlands as well! This is what we call a Becca-friendly meal. Becca, our picky eater, has even dished up twice generously!
