Prep time: 20 min

Cook time: 8 min

Yield: 4 servings

Level: Easy


1 cup Israeli couscous

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 lemon, zested and juiced

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup finely chopped parsley

1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

2 ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced

3 scallions, chopped


Bring a medium-size saucepan of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Add the couscous and cook until al dente, 7 to 8 minutes. Drain the couscous and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and zest with the olive oil to make a vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

In a large serving bowl, mix together the couscous, parsley, cilantro, mint, tomatoes, and scallions. Toss with the vinaigrette and season to taste. Allow it to sit for at least a half hour so the flavors can marry.
