// why am I so n00b?

Here’s a couscous salad recipe I used recently, made by stealing ideas from about 3 other recipes and tweaking a bit of customising. Would eat again :-)


  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1 cup water
  • 200g cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup spring onion
  • 1/4 red bell pepper
  • 1/4 yellow bell pepper
  • 1/4 green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbed feta
  • Dressing:
    • 75ml canola or olive oil
    • 25ml lemon juice
    • freshly ground salt and pepper


  1. Place couscous in a sealable bowl, boil the water, then add boiling water to couscous. Cover and allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Once ready, fluff with a fork.
  2. Cut tomatoes in half, finely chop peppers and spring onions, and mix into couscous.
  3. Dressing: Thoroughly mix together oil and lemon juice, and mix in salt and pepper as required.
  4. Before serving, mix in feta and dressing.
