Couscous with feta

6 December, 2012 — 2 Comments


Combined or as a standalone salad this dish is wonderfully tasty.
I have previously combined it with meatballs in my weekly menu plan 2 and recommend that you try it. Yum!

This recipe serves 6.

What you need:

* 355 ml water
* 175 g couscous
* 5 g salt
* Ground black pepper, to taste
* 20 ml red wine vinegar
* 15 ml Dijon mustard
* 90 ml olive oil
* 3/4 cucumber, seeded and chopped
* 3/4 (4 ounce) containercrumbled feta cheese
* 20 g chopped fresh parsley
* 25 g toasted pine nuts

What you do:

Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Remove from the heat, and stir in the couscous. Cover, and let stand for 10 minutes. Scrape the couscous into a mixing bowl, fluff with a fork, and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
Once the couscous is cold, make the dressing by whisking together the salt, black pepper, red wine vinegar, and Dijon mustard in a small bowl. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while continuing to whisk until the oil has thickened the dressing. Fold the cucumber, feta cheese, green onions, parsley, and pine nuts into the couscous. Pour the dressing overtop, and stir until evenly moistened. Chill 30 minutes before serving.
