My Sister Carol’s Tabouleh Salad

This recipe is fast and easy, keeps well in the fridge for days, tastes better after a day, and is great scooped up with chips or cheesy tortillas.  One batch serves 3 as a main course, 6 as an appetizer.

1/2 C boiling water
1 1/4 C dry couscous (she likes Trader Joe’s brand best)

6 Tbsp olive oil
1/3 C lemon juice

2 tomatoes, diced
1 bunch parsley, stemmed and finely chopped*
5 green onions, sliced*
(*Carol recommends tossing the stemmed parsley and green onions together into the cuisinart for a few seconds)

1/3-2/3 C feta cheese, or to taste
Salt (do taste before salting; if your feta is typically salty, you may not need any)

Mix  the boiling water with the couscous and set aside.

Put the olive oil and lemon juice into a jar with a lid and shake vigorously.  Add to the couscous and stir well.  Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.  Fluff with fork.  

Add tomatoes, finely chopped parsley and green onions .   Add crumbled feta cheese, as much as you like.   Salt and pepper to taste.  Toss lightly.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes.  

Fluff with a fork and serve. 

Note:  doubling the recipe you can use an 8 oz package of feta at one go, but that's a whole lot of tabouleh.  Think carefully before you do this.
