It's finally spring, so I decided to celebrate by trying a new light, (healthy!), vegetarian dinner. I kind of made this up as I went, but it turned out great! It's only about 400 calories per serving (if you divide the recipe below into 4 servings). And it's super fast too -- takes about 15 minutes to throw together. This could also be a nice side dish.
1 box of plain couscous (or 4.5 cups)
1 cucumber, diced
1 can/jar (12-14oz) of artichoke hearts, chopped
2.5 cups of grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
40 kalamata olives, halved
1/2 cup of feta cheese
4 tablespoons of basalmic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Cook the box of couscous according to package directions. Set it aside to cool while you chop the vegetables.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the couscous and stir. That's it!
