Strawberry, Cous Cous, and Feta Cheese Salad

Final

I love salads! There, I said it! They’re so versatile and you can mix and match anything to bring out different flavours. This is the first time I’ve used Cous Cous in a salad, and boy did I like it. I was inspired by this recipe.

Serves 6
What you’ll need

Step-1

1 cup baby spinach leaves
1 cup chopped mint leaves
3/4 cup spring onions, chopped
3/4 cup uncooked cous cous (about 1 1/2 cups cooked)
5 medium-large sized strawberries, quartered
1/3 raw lightly salted walnuts
1/4 cup danish feta cheese, crumbled
handful of sprouts to garnish

Step-2

Start by cooking the cous cous. While it sits in a bowl with boiling water,  mix all of the greens (the spinach, mint and spring onions) into your salad bowl.

Step-3

Next, sprinkle the cous cous over the bed of greens. Add the strawberries & walnuts evenly. The feta comes next, using your fingers, crumble the cheese over the salad in the bowl. Garnish with the sprouts.

Step-4

It’s as simple as that folks. I used some lemon juice in lieu of dressing – divine. Treat yourself with this quick to make salad.

It’s great by itself, or serves as a wonderful side salad to any cooked meal.

Enjoy! Love Megs xo
