This is a delicious salad containing all four food groups ( if you use the red kidney beans)
- 1 cup couscous
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup green onion
- 2 medium tomatoes, diced
- 1 cup canned red kidney beans (only if you want)
- 1 cup feta cheese
- 1⁄4 cup pine nuts
- 2 tablespoons oregano
- Cook couscous in 1 cup of water.
- Cool to room temperature.
- Whisk together lemon juice and olive oil.
- Pour over other ingredients combining well.
- Season with fresh pepper.
This was great! I omitted the feta cheese, and used walnuts instead of pine nuts. Also, I wasn't sure if you meant dried oregano or fresh, and all I had was dried, so I used the given amount of dried oregano, even though it looked like a bit much! However, it all came together in the end, with the crunch of the walnuts complimenting the kidney beans, tomatoes, and cousous to perfection! Thanks stephanie!
I really enjoyed this dish, it was very light and refreshing. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star is because my kids weren't really fans and my husband was indifferent. I will still make this again, but to take for lunch instead of for the whole family. Thanks for the recipe!
Loved this salad with Mediterranean Tilapia Pockets. Easy and such great flavors.
