Couscous Feta Salad


2 cups water
1 1/3 cups couscous
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cucumber, seeded and chopped
1 (4 ounce) container crumbled feta cheese
6 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts


Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Remove from  the heat, and stir in the couscous. Cover, and let stand for 10  minutes. Scrape the couscous into a mixing bowl, fluff with a fork,  and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.

Once the couscous is cold, make the dressing by whisking together  the salt, black pepper, red wine vinegar, and Dijon mustard in a  small bowl. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while continuing to whisk  until the oil has thickened the dressing. Fold the cucumber, feta  cheese, green onions, parsley, and pine nuts into the couscous.

Pour the dressing overtop, and stir until evenly moistened. Chill 30  minutes before serving.
