Quick couscous salad with peppers and feta

This week the I♥CC members are going to make any Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall supper recipe that features ingredients we have in your pantry, fridge and/or freezer! It is highly convenient that River Cottage Veg Every Day! * offers a chapter with store-cupboard suppers. I chose

Quick couscous salad with peppers and feta

and enjoyed it for lunch instead of supper. I had bulgur at hand so the salad had a nice crunch. I made just 2 servings and will enjoy the remaining portion tomorrow for lunch at work.

  1. Cook the couscous according to the instructions on the packet. As soon as it’s cooked, trickle over the olive oil and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper, and fork the couscous gently to separate the grains. Leave to cool a little, and fork again.
  2. While the dressed couscous is still just warm, or cool (but not hot), add the red peppers, cucumber, onion, feta and parsley and toss gently until thoroughly combined. Taste and add more salt and pepper if it needs it, and trickle over a little more olive oil if it tastes at all dry. Serve still slightly warm, or at room temperature.

    I want that for my lunch today and my lunch at work tomorrow too! I love that you used bulgur – I have some in my pantry and may try it with that.
