    C & D's Mommy's Note:

    Not your regular leaf, potato or pasta based salad!! When I serve this, if there are leftovers, I have to send it home with a particular friend of mine. She loves this. She always asks me to make it for her pot luck parties now too!!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium pot, boil water with garlic, margarine and salt. When water is at a rolling boil, add couscous. Stir a couple times. Turn off heat and cover the pot. Leave for 10 minutes without opening the lid.
    2. 2
      After 10 minutes, give the couscous another stir and let sit, uncovered to cool.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, while the couscous is busy cooling, in a large bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients except for the feta cheese, lemon juice and the oil.
    4. 4
      Add the couscous to the bowl. Mix thoroughly to combine everything.
    5. 5
      When everything is combined, you can add the lemon juice and oil and mix again. Sometimes, I find I may have to add a litlle bit more lemon juice, but that is my preference --
    6. 6
      Add feta cheese just prior to serving the salad and mix again.

      Excellent salad. DH even said it was great and you can't get a higher compliment from him. He just didn't want to know what was in it, so I didn't tell him, but he ate it up. I did add some red wine vinegar also just to add a little more pow to the dressing and it worked well. I definitely will make this again. Great summer salad!

      Excellent salad! I also increased the lemon juice, then added red wine vinegar and fresh oregano. Great recipe!

      I made this for a potluck and added the feta right before serving. This was a very refreshing salad and I’ll definitely make it again! THX.
