Israeli Couscous Summer Salad

My girlfriends had a BBQ in their newly refinished backyard last weekend.  Their landlord installed a new deck and planted grass/flowers/bark/etc.  Also, one of my friends, Muffy, was given a barbeque from one of her co-workers.  So you can imagine we were chomping at the bit to hold a BBQ.

We had bacon wrapped hot dogs, chips, grilled veggies, burgers, potato salad and Israeli Couscous Summer Salad.  Plus, we played a little dizzy bat to top it all off.

Israeli Couscous Summer Salad
8 Servings

2 Cups Israeli Couscous
2 - 6 oz Containers of Cherry Tomatoes sliced in half (I used red and yellow)
1 Bunch Basil roughly chopped
8 oz Feta Crumbled
Juice from 2 Lemons
1/4 or more Olive Oil

Cook Israeli Couscous according to package directions.  Let cool to room temperature.  Toss with cherry tomatoes, feta, basil, lemon juice, olive oil.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

So easy, right?!

  12. The Rolex Daytona fake Omega was spotted on race drivers’ wrist, and became a widely acclaimed celebrity, years before Rolex eventually partnered with the fake Hublot competition, to become an official sponsor to the 24 Hours of Daytona endurance race, in 1992. That agreement formally certified what had been achieved already: Hollywood stars and race drivers too, like Paul Newman, were daily fake Cartier wearing their Rolex Daytona during the race and out.
