This recipe keeps well and gets better the longer it stays in the refrigerator so feel free to make ahead. Recipe doesn't call for fresh herbs, but adding them would be a nice idea - whatever you like (cilantro, basil, parsley or oregano).


Cook couscous in water as directed on package. Chop all vegetables into small pieces. Put into bowl. Cover with warm couscous, cover and let steam (do not mix together until veggies have steamed for at least 2 minutes). Top with crumbled feta cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, and black pepper. Chill until ready to serve as main dish or side.
