Mediterranean Couscous Salad


  • 1 cup couscous, prepared according to package directions
  • 1 cup sliced, then halved, English cucumber (I only remove strips of the peel – looks prettier that way)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 TBS each of chopped fresh basil & mint
  • 1/2 cup rough chopped mixed olives (kalamata, green, etc.)
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Sea salt & cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup vinaigrette dressing of your choice or just add olive oil


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. I don’t add too much additional salt because the olives are salty.
  3. I used a champagne vinaigrette that I had in the fridge. Any light vinaigrette will do. You could also just use olive oil.
