Lemony Couscous Salad

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 10 ounce box whole wheat couscous (I have used regular and multi-colored couscous)
  • 1-2/3 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1-1/2 cups diced English cucumber
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 8 ounce package crumbled feta cheese

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork; cool.

Combine couscous, tomatoes and next 5 ingredients (through dill) in a large bowl; toss well. Add cheese.
