Greek Style Israeli Pearl Couscous Salad #quarantinecooking

This Covid-19 pandemic has given me some time at home with the boys.  So far, I have enough ingredients to make some decent meals. 

This is our side dish with dinner tonight.



Greek Style Israeli Pearl Couscous Salad



  • 3 cups of cooked peal couscous
  • 20 cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • .5 cup of chick peas
  • 1 cup of diced celery
  • .25 cup of red onion
  • .5 cup of red or yellow onion
  • finely minced jalapeno if you like it spicy
Greek style dressing
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • zest of half a lemon
  • 3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • garlic cloves, pressed (or finely minced)
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper


Mix dressing into the other ingredients. I topped it with some Zatar cause that's how I roll.
