Couscous Salad with a Greek Flavour 

This salad is similar to a Greek salad, but is made with couscous. The ingredients are a nice blend of Kalamata olives, red onions, fresh mint and topped with feta cheese.  It's perfect for a side dish or for lunch.

Serves 6

2/3 cup dry couscous
1 cup boiling water
1 cup canned garbanzo beans, drained
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 tomato, diced
1 cup cucumber, diced
12 Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
2/3 cup red onion, chopped
4 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Salt and pepper, to taste

Place couscous in a bowl. Pour boiling water over, stir, and cover with a plate or parchment paper on top and set aside. After 10 minutes, remove cover and fluff with a fork. 

Add garbanzo beans, red bell pepper, olives, red onion, mint, olive oil, lemon juice and feta cheese. Toss well. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
