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.

How to Make Mediterranean Couscous Salad/Wraps

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat water (or broth) just to a boil. Place couscous in medium bowl, add hot water (or broth). Cover and let stand 5 minutes or until water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork. Let cool and place in a large bowl.
  2. Add all the veggies (except the tomatoes - they tend to get soggy) to the coucous.
  3. Mix together olive oil, lemon juice and sugar (if desired). Pour about 1/2 to 2/3 of it over the couscous, mix, taste and add more dressing if needed.
  4. Chill. Add feta, nuts and tomatoes just before serving.
  5. For wraps; serve with shredded lettuce, tomatoes and feta on the side. The nuts are optional.
