This delicious Mediterranean Couscous Salad combines couscous with cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, Kalamata Olives, and feta cheese all drizzled with an easy three ingredient lemon vinaigrette. I love to serve it for a light summer lunch or dinner. This simple salad is the perfect accompaniment for Grilled Marinated Chicken, Lemon Pepper Baked Cod or Garlic Lemon Butter Seared Scallops. My husband and I enjoy this salad on a frequent basis.
