Greek Couscous Salad with Feta...

The inspiration for this recipe came from the August issue of Everyday Food. The original recipe is called "Bulgur Salad with Feta and Pine Nuts". I didn't have any bulgur or pine nuts so I thought I'd improvise. It turned out very delicious!

Greek Couscous Salad with Feta
Everyday Food (Modified)

1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cucumber, peeled, halved, and finely diced
1/2 of a rotisserie chicken, removed from carcass and cut into cubes

1. In a large bowl, mix couscous with salt and ground pepper. Pour in 2 1/2 cups boiling water; stir. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand 3 minutes. Uncover; add lemon juice and olive oil and fluff with fork. Set aside.

2. Add feta, red onion, tomatoes, parsley, and cucumber. Toss to combine.
