Greek cous-cous salad!

Updated on March 28, 2014


Greek cous-cous salad

This is a great salad that pairs very nicely with Gyros. It's light, refreshing, and the ingredients are forgiving, you don't have to add everything in the ingredient list, especially if there are particular things you don't like. This side makes plenty for everyone and it's great on a hot day, or for outdoor gatherings!

Add Gyros, hummus and pita chips for an appetizer and viola, a great Greek meal.
