Zingy Beetroot, Feta Cheese, Cous cous Salad

June 06

You could use any roast vegetable here really, but I particularly love  the combination of the earthy beetroot and the spiky feta cheese. I use  cous cous which is incredibly easy to prepare, but you could also try  using bulghur wheat which is healthier alternative and just as easy to prepare.




  • time 20 mins
  • serves Serves 4
  1. Whisk together the ingredients for dressing and set aside.
  2. Put the cous cous in a bowl with the stock granules and cover with boiling water, cover with cling wrap and leave until all the water has been soaked up and the cous cous is nice a plump!
  3. Using a fork fluff up the cous cous when it's ready.
  4. Toss in the beetroot, along with the dressing, pine nuts and feta cheese. Serve straightaway or allow to sit for a little to allow the flavours to develop.
