Israeli Couscous With Tomato, Cucumbers, Feta, and Mint

Ingredients

Kosher salt
1 cup Israeli couscous
1 medium English cucumber, peeled and finely diced (2 cups)
1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh spearmint or pineapple mint leaves; additional sprigs for garnish
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice; more as needed
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup small-diced feta cheese

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring 2 quarts well-salted water to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over medium heat, toast the couscous, stirring frequently, until golden-brown, about 7 minutes.
  3. Cook the couscous in the boiling water until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water until cool. Pour the couscous into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the cucumber, tomatoes, and mint.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the oil, lemon juice and zest, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Stir in the feta. Add the feta mixture to the couscous, season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and mix well. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the mint sprigs.
  5. Serves 4 to 6.

the lebanese couscous you speak of is actually bulgar wheat!

It has mint in it, not parsley. It is super light and perfect for dinner and work lunches! I have never heard of Lebanese couscous, I will have to do a little research to figure out the difference! Thanks!

There's a couscous salad at Costco right now that is delicious. But it's a total sodium bomb. I'm down for an alternative! :)
