A very refreshing couscous sald...nice and lemmony! Would be great served alongside BBQ meat/chicken. Made exactly as directed this time but would reduce the water by 1/4 of a cup next time(personal preference). Yummo, thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the couscous, salt, and boiling water to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Cover bowl and set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Fluff couscous with a fork; all liquid should be asborbed; let cool to room temperature (I put the couscous in the frig to chill a little).
  4. Once the couscous is at room temperature, add the chopped green onion, cucumber, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, feta cheese, parsley, mint, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Toss salad gently.
  6. It is recommended that if you make this salad ahead of time, add the olive oil and lemon juice right before ready to serve.
