A delightfully fresh salad with a delicious mix of flavors and textures.
I got the recipe for this delicious salad from my friend, Tannya, a truly amazing cook. Toasting the couscous brings out a wonderful nuttiness, which is complemented by the salty feta cheese, sweet tomatoes, and fresh chives.

Meanwhile, heat another teaspoon of olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat, add couscous, and saute, stirring frequently, until couscous it nicely toasted. Remove couscous from heat and immediately add to boiling water. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
