Make Ahead Tips
You can refrigerate the salad for up to 4 hours; toss before serving.
Put this together as an addition to our grilled salmon for tonight's dinner. I used fresh oregano and lemon thyme instead of mint. Excellent! We love couscous, so this will be my new go to! Even poured the reserved dressing on the salmon. Delicious!
I added diced red pepper and scallions, served with lamb kebobs. Excellent!!
I absolutely love this salad. I am huge fan of lemon, so I always at least double the juice. It is so cool and refreshing; just perfect for a light summer supper. A big hit at potlucks. Do be mindful of over salting. With the feta, the salted cooking water and the added salt in the dressing it's easy to go a bit overboard. I am eager to try it in tomato cups, as another reviewer mentioned.
Made this the night before going on a picnic. Was lovely and was all eaten up! Would definitely be making again. Would be great to have some other giant couscous recipes :)
