Mediterranean Cous Cous Salad


We had short ribs for dinner tonight, and I needed a quick side dish to go with it.  This salad came out so delicious, and I will definitely make this one again!


  • 1 c. whole wheat cous cous
  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • salt
  • 1 c. cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 c. English cucumber, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 /2 of an orange, yellow, red, or green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 c. artichoke hearts
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 c. fresh herbs, minced (I used mint and basil)


  1. In a covered saucepan, bring cous cous, water, olive oil, and salt to a boil; then turn off heat and keep on burner for 5 to 7 minutes.  After 7 or so minutes fluff cous cous with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes through lemon juice in a bowl; then add the cous cous, and toss to combine; then add the feta cheese and herbs and toss once again. Taste and correct seasoning, if necessary.
