"This is a recipe I created when I needed something to take to a family get-together. It can be made ahead, so you just grab it and go! You can prepare all ingredients and refrigerate separately, then mix together before serving, but this recipe keeps well too!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 1/2 cups
red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-by-2-inch strips
yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-by-2-inch strips
salt and ground black pepper to taste
cherry tomatoes, halved
kalamata olives, pitted and halved
crumbled feta cheese
I made this recipe almost exactly as directed with only a couple of very minor changes. One, I diced the peppers instead of cutting them into strips and later quartered the tomatoes since that made them mix into the couscous much easier. Second, I cooked the peppers only until tender and not until charred since I don't like the charred flavor. Other than those simple differences, I made it as the recipe calls for and it was very delicious! It was really good both hot right after cooking and the next day as a cold salad. I highly recommend this recipe and will post a photo the next time I make it if no one has posted one by then.
We all liked it. Had 2nd helpings . Spouse said if you have to eat cous cous..... . So a 3&1/2 rating. Would make it again.
