lemony cucumber couscous salad



Lemony Cucumber Couscous Salad is a light, fresh, and vibrant pasta salad perfect for any summer meal.


    • 1.5 cups pearl couscous ($2.20)
    • 1 fresh lemon ($0.89)
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil ($0.32)
    • 1/4 tsp garlic powder ($0.02)
    • 1/4 tsp salt ($0.02)
    • 1 English cucumber ($1.49)
    • 1/2 cup parsley ($0.27)
    • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked pepper ($0.02)
    • 3 oz. feta cheese, crumbled ($1.23)


    • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the couscous and continue to boil for about 5 minutes, or until the couscous is tender. Drain the couscous in a colander or wire strainer. Rinse briefly with cool water to cool off the couscous, then allow to drain while you prepare the rest of the salad.

    • Zest the lemon and then squeeze the juice. You'll need about ½ tsp of zest and 3 Tbsp of juice.

    • Add the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper to a bowl and stir to combine.

    • Chop the cucumber into quarter-rounds and roughly chop the parsley.

    • Add the cooled and drained couscous to a large bowl along with the cucumber, parsley, lemon zest, and feta. Pour the dressing over top, then stir to combine. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
