Day 73: Finally getting outdoors to do some work. Our flower beds were overgrown with clover and sea grass that we never cut down last fall. Next is getting some mulch for the beds but that will have to wait for awhile. I am not ready to venture into a big box hardware store just yet. We are looking to get the porch and patio furniture outside and maybe try and use our backyard. We have started grilling a bit more already. Some summers we grill just about every night and others we almost never grill. I think this is going to be a grilling summer just to make ourselves feel better about life. For some reason grilling makes summer taste better.
This summer salad is super easy and goes with so many different main dishes. We served it the other night with fish but it would be delicious with any grilled meat or Mediterranean style meal.
Verdict: I am not a fan of lemon but I still like this dish. Everyone in my family likes this because it just makes a Mediterranean Feta Salad a bit different. It is so easy to make the cous cous and there was still plenty at the grocery store recently because I think many people don’t know what to do with it. I prefer the pearl cous cous but if you have other on hand that would work too.
I served this with a stuffed cod (click for link to recipe) to complete the meal.
