There is nothing I love more than a good salad for lunch. I made this a few weeks ago and gobbled it up. I love the whole wheat Trader Joes Israeli couscous, that is what I used for this but you could use plain couscous too. Greek ingredients are my favorite so this was pretty much a spin on my Greek Salad but with couscous instead. It is the perfect healthy, light lunch.
