Recipe: Couscous feta apricot salad

Couscous Feta Apricot Salad


For the couscous:

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat couscous (in the video I said 1 cup; make as much as you like!)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric (a pinch)
  • 1/8 tsp pepper (a dash)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water (put as much boiling water as you do couscous)

Salad ingredients:

  • 1 cup arugula (you can swap out for another leafy green)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped mint (fresh)
  • ~10 chopped dried apricots (I cut mine with scissors)
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4-1/2 cup crumbled feta

Additional liquid ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (or more)
  • 1 Tbsp orange juice (optional)


  • small pot with a lid
  • measuring cup
  • kettle
  • bowl
  • scissors
  • fork, spoon (something to fluff the couscous and mix the salad with)


  1. Mix spices with couscous in a small pot. Add boiling water. Cover with lid and let sit for 5 or more minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, add all the salad ingredients. Toss together.
  3. When done, fluff the couscous with a fork. Add couscous to the bowl with the other salad ingredients.
  4. Drizzle on top with olive oil and orange juice. Mix and enjoy!
