    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
    • 1/4 cup salad oil (I use Olive)
    • 2 tablespoons all purpose Greek seasoning (I use Cavendars)
    • 1 medium zucchini
    • 1 medium red onion
    • 1 large red pepper
    • 2 cups couscous
    • 2 cups chicken stock
    • 1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
    • 1 cup feta, crumbled
    • 1/2 kalamata olive, pitted & cut in half

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix the first 3 ingredients together in a large bowl, Place to the side.
    2. 2
      Slice zucchini into strips lengthwise and red onion into large rings (both about a centimeter thick).
    3. 3
      Heat a grill pan to very hot and grill the red pepper (whole), onion rings and zucchini strips. Remove the onion and zucchini when they begin to blacken slightly on the outsides - do no over cook! Continue charring the red pepper until the outside skin is completely black. (This can also be done outside on your BBQ).
    4. 4
      While still slightly hot, chop the zucchini and the onion into 1/2 inch pieces and add to the vinegar.
    5. 5
      Place the red pepper in a paper bag and allow the steam loosen the skin. After a couple of minutes, remove the peel and the seeds. Chop the pepper into 1/2 inch pieces and add to the vinegar.
    6. 6
      Toss the grilled veggies in the vinegar dressing and cover the bowl with plastic plastic wrap (to trap the remaining steam inside).
    7. 7
      Cook the couscous according to the manufacturer using the chicken stock. I have provided the measurements for a "quick cooking" couscous, you may need to add more/less liquid according to the brand you use.
    8. 8
      After cooking, fluff the couscous with a fork and add to the bowl with the grilled veggies and vinegar dressing.
    9. 9
      Add the cheese, tomatoes and olives. Toss to incorporate all ingredients well.
    10. 10
      Chill. This recipe can be made a day in advance. Lightly toss the salad before serving to give it a light texture.
