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.




  • serves Serves 4
  • time 20 mins


  1. 1. Whisk together the ingredients for dressing and set aside.
  2. 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. 3. Using a fork fluff up the cous cous when it's ready.
  4. 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.
