Cous Cous Salad.

Postby smoke » Thu Mar 18, 2010 1:20 pm

This is just about my favorite portable food. One summer I was working out of my car; I had a dislike for sandwiches, salads, fruit, or just about everything else that can be packed without access to a microwave. It tastes best cold or cool, but is also edible after it's been sitting in the car in the summer for several hours.

Start with a basic acid and oil dressing. My favorite is olive oil and lemon juice.

Dice cucumber and tomato into small pieces. Crumble a package of herbed feta.

Cook some couscous according to package directions and add to the dressing. Gently stir in the cucumber, tomato, and feta.

Let sit in the refrigerator overnight to mingle.

I'm afraid I don't have exact measurements anymore. I think it's 2 parts pasta to 1 part vegetables to less than 1 part cheese.

Roast beef or roast chicken is a great side to this.
