    Kree's Note:

    This is a summer salad with a Mediterranean flare! I created it for RSC #7. You can add a chopped bell pepper and increase the amount of mint if you desire, or throw in some other fresh herbs of your choice. See the notes in parentheses to make this dairy-free.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place couscous in a large bowl and pour boiling water over the top. Let it soak for 10 minutes for the grains to swell, then fluff it with a fork.
    2. 2
      Add the tomato, chickpeas, and feta to the couscous.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, lemon juice, mint, and salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Pour the yogurt mixture over the couscous and mix well to combine.
    5. 5
      Eat it as is or chill it in the refrigerator for a real Summer treat. It's even better when the flavors combine for at least an hour.

      This is a very good salad. I made it exactly as directed, and served it cold. I probably will put in little more tomato next time, but it is good just as it is written.

      I used fat free lemon yogurt with nice results! I do suggest throwing in more mint and a hanfull of scallions for a little more kick! Love biting into the bits of feta! I prefered it chilled. Thanks for a refreshing and easy salad!

      This recipe was 'OK' but needed 'more' to make it work. A little bland, but definitely something that could be worked on and embellished.
