Adapted from

  1/2 cup boiling water
  1 1/4 cups dry couscous
   4 Tbsp olive oil
  1/3 cup lemon juice
   1 clove garlic minced
  1/2 medium red or green pepper, diced
(I used frozen from last summer)
  1/4 medium onion, diced
  1/2 medium cucumber diced

  1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley


 (note: add tomato when in season)

Mix dry couscous with boiling water, add olive oil and lemon juice. Stir thoroughly, then cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Perfect time for dicing all those veg. Fluff the couscous then add in all veg & herbs. Toss together with lemon juice, then salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Fluff again prior to serving.
