Zingy Beetroot, Feta Cheese, Cous cous Salad

Great summer side salad!

Monday, June 6, 2011

4 large cooked beetroot, sliced in quarters

200g of feta cheese

200g of couscous

2 teaspoon of vegetable stock granules

100g of pine nuts, toasted

Dressing

3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp of lemon juice

1 tsp of Dijon mustard

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

Sea salt and ground black pepper to season

20 mins
Serves 4

You could use any roast vegetable here really, but I particularly love  the combination of the earthy beetroot and the spiky feta cheese. I use  cous cous which is incredibly easy to prepare, but you could also try  using bulghur wheat which is healthier alternative and just as easy to prepare.

 

 

 

Whisk together the ingredients for dressing and set aside.
Put the cous cous in a bowl with the stock granules and cover with boiling water, cover with cling wrap and leave until all the water has been soaked up and the cous cous is nice a plump!
Using a fork fluff up the cous cous when it's ready.
Toss in the beetroot, along with the dressing, pine nuts and feta cheese. Serve straightaway or allow to sit for a little to allow the flavours to develop.
