  • 1 ½ - 2 cups pearl couscous, cooked as per packet instructions
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, chopped into small cubes
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh dill, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup coriander, finely chopped
  • ½ cup feta, crumbled
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted



  1. Cook pearl couscous according to the packet instructions, then rinse it in cold water to cool completely and set it aside.
  2. While the couscous is cooking, make the vinaigrette by adding all the ingredients to a medium bowl and whisking until well combined. Set it aside.
  3. Once the couscous is cooked and cooled, add it to a large salad bowl. Then add the cucumber, spring onion, dill, coriander, and feta, and toss lightly to combine.
  4. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad, add the pine nuts, and toss again until just combined. Garnish with lemon slices and extra coriander (optional but we recommend!), serve & enjoy!
