Just a quick side dish I whipped up as a complement to grape-leaf wrapped salmon I served for dinner. This is extremely easy to make, and is very flavorful.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the couscous (Bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil).
  2. Heat olive oil in a small pan to medium-high.
  3. Add tomato, scallions, garlic, and olives.
  4. Saute in the pan for around 3 minutes.
  5. Fluff couscous with a fork.
  6. Add salt to taste, mix tomato mixture with couscous and serve.
  7. As an optional enhancement, you can crumble some feta cheese on the couscous right before serving.

Really good... and low calorie--yay! I added a bit more garlic than you did for more flavor, but over all this is a great recipe that I will definitely make again!

My 12 year old son liked it more than my husband! I added sliced bella mushrooms and instead of roma tomatoes I used sun-dried tomatoes.The crumbled feta was the perfect thing to top it off with. Delish!

Easy, great-tasting, and healthy! I used onions instead of scallions, and added a dash of paprika to spice it up a tad. True to its word, this was ready in 15 minutes flat! Thanks for this one; it's a great recipe to have on hand for when you're in a hurry.
