This salad is another great way to get those veggies into your diet. If you left out the cheese, it would be vegan. I love the sweet goodness of the veggies when pared with the saltiness of the cheese and olives.


Roasted Vegetable, Feta, and Olive Couscous Salad (inspired by Frugal Feeding)

  • 3/4 cup couscous
  • 1 red bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, cut in large dice
  • 2 small white onions, roughly chopped

  • Salt
  • A handful of kalamata olives
  • A handful of feta cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • Juice of ½ a lemon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees  Toss peppers, zucchini, and onion in a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring at the 15 minute mark.

Serve at room temperature. Refrigerate any leftovers.
