Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup mandarin olive oil, preferably Nudo
  • 1 Cup Israeli couscous
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 2 Ounces Feta cheese
  • 6 stalks mint

Directions

Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a pan over medium heat and lightly fry the couscous until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Add a cup of cold water to the pan and stir. Once all of the water has been absorbed, add more water, ½ cup at a time, until the couscous is cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Cut the ends off the cucumber and halve lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds of each half with a spoon. Peel the skin off of one half  and cut each halves into ¼-inch pieces. Cube the feta cheese into ¼-inch pieces as well.

Remove the mint leaves from the stalks and tear them into small pieces. Add the mint, feta, and cucumber to the couscous. Add 3 tablespoons of mandarin olive oil, season with salt and pepper, toss, and serve chilled.
