A couple people on The Twitter asked me to share the recipe for the couscous salad I make for pretty much any BBQ or potluck event we attend. I love sharing food ideas, but I also run into a minor issue when asked to post recipes: namely the fact that I never follow them. I don't know what it is with me and recipes. Perhaps some sense of rebellion in me? Some spirit of adventure that doesn't want to be tamed by things like fractions and measuring cups? A throwback to my anti-establishment phase? I don't know. Guess I'm just a maverick.
A can of sliced black olives
A bag of pine nuts
A container of crumbled feta cheese
Mix up the above ingredients in a big bowl.
You can prepare this in advance - in my opinion it tastes even better after marinating a bit. It's good straight out of the fridge or room temperature. I think I could eat this every day. Perfect with chicken, or on it's own.
