Couscous Salad


  • 1 cup whole wheat couscous (I like Hodgson Mill brand)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/2-1 cup chopped herbs (parsley, basil, cilantro, thyme, anything you like will work)
  • 3/4 cup feta, crumbled or cubed
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • salt and pepperĀ 
  • pinch of crushed red pepper

Prepare the couscous according to package directions. Fluff with a fork.
Saute carrot, onion, garlic, and red pepper in olive oil until soft. Add cranberries and let cool. Add to couscous. Mix in herbs, feta, and almonds.
