Israeli Couscous With Tomato, Cucumbers, Feta, and Mint

Ingredients

  1. Kosher salt
  2. 1 cup Israeli couscous
  3. 1 medium English cucumber, peeled and finely diced (2 cups)
  4. 1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  5. 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh spearmint or pineapple mint leaves; additional sprigs for garnish
  6. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice; more as needed
  8. 1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  9. Freshly ground black pepper
  10. 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.
