Cold Cucumber Couscous Salad

Submitted by Sally Williams (Arlington Buying Club)

1 cup couscous
1 cup water or chicken broth
1 cucumber-peeled, seeded and chopped into bite size pieces
½ red onion-chopped
¾ cup grape tomatoes-cut in half lengthwise
½ cup fresh feta cheese-crumbled
1 lemon-juiced

Bring one cup of water or chicken broth to a boil in a small pot. Once boiling, add the couscous, cover the pot with a lid and turn off the stove burner. Allow to steam for 5 minutes. Fluff the couscous with a fork and replace the lid.

Continue with dressing:

Lemon Vinaigrette
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
½ cup olive oil

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, honey, salt and pepper. While continuing to whisk, slowly stream in the olive oil. Whisk until the vinaigrette is completely combined and taste for any needed salt and pepper adjustments.
In a large bowl, mix together the cooked couscous, cucumber, red onion, tomatoes and feta cheese. Pour the lemon vinaigrette over the salad (you may not need all the dressing) and toss well. Place in the refrigerator until chilled.
