Couscous with feta – a salad kids can make and everyone will love. Makes a perfect packed lunch too.

Try our couscous with preserved lemons and chickpeas for a more substantial side dish.


  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder or 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 125g couscous
  • 1 tomato
  • ⅓  cucumber
  • 8 pitted olives
  • 100g feta, cut into bite-size cubes
  • 2 tbsp French dressing


  1. Put a kettle of water on to boil. Carefully measure out 150ml of boiled water. Add the stock powder or cube and stir to mix. Put the couscous into a bowl, pour in the stock and cover the bowl with cling film. Leave for 5 minutes until the stock has been absorbed. Uncover the bowl and stir the couscous with a fork to loosen the grains.
  2. Cut the tomato and cucumber in half, then put them flat-side down on a board and chop into smallish pieces. Add to the couscous with the olives and feta. Add the dressing and stir to mix. Put into a sealable container and chill in the fridge.

  1. Tip your weighed couscous into a measuring jug, check where it comes up to and write it down on the recipe, then next time you make this you won’t need to use the scales.
