  1. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Remove from the heat, and stir in the couscous. Cover, and let stand for 10 minutes. Scrape the couscous into a mixing bowl, fluff with a fork, and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
  2. Once the couscous is cold, make the dressing by whisking together the salt, black pepper, red wine vinegar, and Dijon mustard in a small bowl. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while continuing to whisk until the oil has thickened the dressing. Fold the cucumber, feta cheese, green onions, parsley, and pine nuts into the couscous. Pour the dressing overtop, and stir until evenly moistened. Chill 30 minutes before serving.

I have to be honest I was a little skeptical the first time I made it's a hit everytime I make it.

I LOVED this, but my husband wasn't so crazy about the dressing. I really can't see why. We both generally don't like mustard, but this was a perfect use of it. I would make it again maybe fo...

awesome. I make it all the time.Even my 2 year old will eat it. I wouldn't being it to a potuck though, because some people aren't fans of new things.. (i tried it, didn't get touched :(

This has become one of my favourite recipes, especially in summer months. I love to add in different ingredients to play with texture and colour. I often replace the pine nuts with sunflower s...
