Minted Couscous Salad With Courgettes & Feta

Couscous Salad-6


I first had this amazing salad at my friend Lina’s house. It was instant love, and it has since been on my “if all else fails cook this” list. And it goes so well with the chicken schnitzel, that I almost always never make the one without the other.

Another super easy & delicious recipe.


½ a box couscous with lemon & mint (it comes with 2 pouches, so just use one).

1 cup boiling water

2 medium courgettes (Zucchini) cut into small cubes. I used the round ones because that’s what I found, but the regular kind works just as nice.

1 small onion chopped

feta cheese cut into small-ish cubes

some olive oil to drizzle


put the content of the one pouch of couscous in a small pan, pour on it the boiling water, cover the pan & set aside.

Lightly sautee the courgettes and onions in a frying pan with very little olive oil. Do not over cook as you want the courgettes to still be crunchy.

Fluff your couscous with a fork.

Add your cooled courgettes mixture

add the feta, drizzle some olive oil, mix with fork to combine all.

P.S. If you can not find this particular brand of couscous “with lemon & mint” in your grocery store, just get a plain kind, and add your own mint and lemon.
