My boyfriend made a dish similar to this for me one time and now it is my go to weekday recipe. The ingredients are easy to have on hand (just have to have fresh parsley, but that lasts for just over a week in the fridge). It is refreshing and stores well in the fridge. I usually go by feels to alter it to your taste! Takes less than 20 minutes. —sweetheart

In This Recipe
Cook the couscous in salted water for 8-10 minutes. While cooking, chop up the vegetables, and parsley into a boil. Mix up the lemon juice, zest, olive oil and garlic powder and sprinkle in.
When the couscous is done cooking, drain and cool by pouring cold water over it. Once cool and drained, add to the vegetables and vinaigrette.
Toss in the feta and you have a wonderful dish! It is great for potlucks (because you can make it ahead and refrigerate) or a fresh summer side.
