Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons plus 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups Israeli couscous 
  • 3 small zucchini, sliced lengthwise into planks 
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cored and quartered 
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and quartered 
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cored and quartered 
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 
  • 1 1/2 cups crumbled feta 
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint 

Directions

Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the couscous and toast until golden brown. Add 1 1/2 cups water, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until all of the liquid is absorbed, about 12 minutes. Fluff with a fork to separate the grains. Set aside.

Prepare a grill for medium heat. Toss the zucchini and peppers with the vegetable oil and some salt and pepper. Grill the vegetables, flipping occasionally, until just tender and lightly charred, about 20 minutes. Remove from the grill and, when cool enough to handle, cut into 1-inch pieces. Mix the grilled vegetables together with the couscous.

In a bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil. Toss the lemon vinaigrette, feta and mint with the couscous salad. Mix well and season with salt and pepper to taste.
