I have whipped this quick recipe up at least 5 times in the last few weeks. It is quick, easy, delicious, and with the addition of tomatoes and cucumbers, both high in vitamin C and vitamin A, it is wonderfully healthy. Couscous is also an important source of selenium, a mineral that can help repair cells, read more on selnium at the New York Times here.
Combine the couscous, tomatoes, cucumber, and chickpeas in a large bowl. Squeeze the lemon and lime juice directly into the bowl, add the olive oil, and some salt and pepper. Toss well, taste, and adjust with more of the above until it tastes just right. This really needs a generous amount of salt, and the lemon and lime juices might need to be adjusted depending on how juicy the fruit is.
Add the basil and feta and toss gently until it is evenly dispersed.
Serves 4 – 6.
