Couscous Salad with Mint Cucumber and Feta recipe:

Couscous (pronounced Koose-Koose) is considered a pasta which is made of small granules of semolina flour, and is traditional in North African cuisine. It is also available made from whole-wheat flour, which slightly increases the fiber and boosts nutritional value. It is a culinary ingredient used as a substitution for rice or quinoa, it is very versatile, and it’s preparation requires little more than the addition of hot water and fluffing with a fork, then served as a side dish or in recipes, taking on the flavor of whatever you cook it with.  Ways to serve Couscous include adding it to soups, mixing it with sauteed vegetables, and as a breakfast cereal.

Here is what you will need:

Ingredients;

1 cup Israeli couscous

1 medium English cucumber; peeled and finely diced (2 cups)

1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh spearmint or pineapple mint; additional sprigs for garnish

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice; more as needed

1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest

1 cup small-diced feta cheese

Freshly ground black pepper
