Ok, now coming to the main point. This recipe has been sitting in my drafts for quite sometime now. This is a very easy breezy salad, which you can put together in a matter of few minutes. On a busy week day, this is a very good way of fixing up the supper and hardly needs a recipe. Anyways, here you go.
Preparation time: 15 min
Serves: 2 - 3
Couscous - 1 cup
Tuna fish - 1 tin
Feta Cheese - 100g
Olives - a few
Tomato - 1
Onion - 1
Mint - to garnish
Salt and pepper - to taste
Chop the onion,tomatoes and olives to little pieces. Cut the feta cheese into little bite sized chunks. Cook the couscous as per instructions or as found below.
In a large mixing bowl, take the cooked couscous. Add the chopped onions, tomatoes, olives and feta cheese. Drain and add the tuna pieces and spread them. Add salt, pepper and chopped mint leaves. Give them all a good mix. Done!!
Take the couscous in a bowl along with little salt. Add equivalent amount of boiling water to it. Keep it covered for about 5 minutes. Add a little butter or olive oil and fluff with a fork.
This salad resulted as an effort to make use of some of the items sitting in my fridge. If you are a vegetarian, you can omit tuna and use some cooked beans instead. If you want to go light for the dinner, avoid the feta cheese. You can use parsley or coriander leaves instead of mint. Oh, the choice is yours and it is endless.
