One of my favorite summer salads, so easy, quick, and healthy. All of my favorites: extra virgin olive oil, lemon, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, feta and fresh herbs. You’ll get plenty of raves with this one… Last August, my cousin Terry, her husband Steve, and daughter Sidney were visiting Portland, Maine (from New Jersey). In rush, I through together this delicious, Mediterranean style couscous salad with Terry in mind. A real hit, she was crazy about it. I happily added this scrumptious fresh side dish/salad to my long list of favorites. I hope you like too.

Mediterranean Couscous Salad
The fresh ingredients listed are usually kitchen staples so this is easy to fix in a flash. I’m one for improvising so feel free to use what’s fresh, in season and available.
Combine couscous, feta, tomatoes, cucumber, chickpeas and olives in a large bowl. Squeeze in lime or lime juice and I like to grate in a little zest before squeezing the lemon. Add everything else and toss gently.
