Whole Wheat Greek CousCous Salad

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.

||  G R E E K  C O U S C O U S ||

- 1 bag or box whole wheat couscous
- diced cherry tomatoes
- diced kalamata olives
- diced English cucumber
- thinly sliced spinach
- diced red bell pepper
- diced red onion
- feta crumbled
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 garlic clove minced
- salt and pepper

Cook Couscous according to box.
Chop all veggies and place in large mixing bowl.  Add cooled couscous to veggies.  Mis together olive oil and next 4 ingredients.  Pour over couscous mixture.  Add feta and toss all together.  Best served room temperature. 
Feel free to double dressing if you think you salad needs more.
