A friend sent me this recipe. She warned me that this multiplies quickly! The more veggies you add, the more salad you have.

If you make it ahead; wait to add the tomatoes, nuts, and dressing until just before serving.

I like to serve it as a wrap. I use tortilla wraps (or pitas). I serve the tomatoes, feta and nuts on the side, along with shredded lettuce for a make your own.

I also like to increase the amount of couscous.
