Recipe: Couscous Salad - #2

With 5 grams of fiber in just 1/4 cup, whole wheat couscous is a big winner in the fiber sweepstakes.


1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup whole wheat couscous
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 tomato, chopped, or 1/2 cup canned diced tomato
1 small cucumber, chopped
2 Tbsp. crumbled feta cheese
2 Tbsp. vinegar & oil salad dressing


Bring water to a boil; add salt. Pour over couscous and let stand, covered, 10 minutes while you chop vegetables. Add other ingredients. Toss well. Serve warm or refrigerate to serve later.
