Vivien’s fail-safe Recipe: Couscous Salad!

Pic by Franzi

My good friend Vivien stayed at my place over the weekend for a visit. On the first evening she decided to cook something for us both and prepared her own kitchen classic, the couscous salad. I love this dish, because its simply made, consists of fresh and healthy ingredients and is really liked by everyone! Thus, try it out and from then on, enjoy it regularly!

Recipe (serves four):


300 g couscous (prepared with 300 ml salted water), 1 minced onion, 1 thinly sliced zucchini, 500 g cherry tomatoes (cut into pieces), 1 bunch of parsley (minced), 1 minced red bell pepper, salt and pepper, app. 200 ml of olive oil , 60g dried tomatoes, 75g  feta cheese (diced)


Prepare the couscous (as described on the package) and let it cool down briefly. Roast gently (in olive oil and one after the other in the same pan) the onions, the bell pepper, and the zucchini. Mix the roasted vegetables, the tomatoes, the dried tomatoes, the parsley and the couscous with as much olive oil as is needed until the salad reached a consistency you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

…And let it stand for a while, then season again. Serve with feta cheese.
