Israeli Couscous Salad with Feta

Israeli Couscous Salad with Feta is a cross between tabouli, pasta and traditional couscous. It has all the yumminess of any traditional Middle Eastern cuisine…feta, olives, tomatoes, chickpeas….my mouth is watering just thinking about it! It really is very easy to make. It’s more of an “assembly” dish than it is a “cooking” dish, although the couscous does have to be cooked! 

Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 15 min; Cook Time – 15 min.

Ingredients:

2 cups Israeli Couscous

4 cups Chicken Broth (substituting water is not an option with this)

cherry tomatoes, halved

Kalamata olives, halved,

feta cheese, crumbled

chickpeas

fresh mint, chopped

Fresh lemon juice

Salt and Pepper

Preparing Israeli Couscous Salad with Feta:

Bring chicken broth to a boil and add the couscous. Cook for about 6-7 minutes or until soft. Drain and put in large mixing bowl to let cool. Add desired amounts of remaining ingredients.(Please make sure that your couscous is cool enough before adding the feta, otherwise it will start to melt a bit). Add fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and serve!
