Couscous, Cranberry, and Feta Salad

Couscous, Cranberry, and Feta Salad


Prep time: 10 mins

Servings: Original recipe makes 2 servings


This recipe is great hot or cold. I invented it in grad school when I had no time to cook. It’s a quick and easy one dish recipe. I use it as a side dish for nice meals or a full meal for lunch. You can make it in 5 minutes or less and eat immediately. For extra protein you can add chicken breast.


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup couscous
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing, or to taste
  • salt to taste

Directions

Place the couscous and cranberries in a heatproof bowl. Pour in the boiling water, and stir with a fork. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and set aside 5 to 10 minutes.

Fluff the couscous with a fork, and fold in the cucumber and feta cheese. Season to taste with balsamic vinaigrette and salt.
