3 Bring 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) water to a boil. Pour into a large serving bowl. Stir in couscous. Cover and let stand about 5 minutes.
4 Fluff couscous with a fork. Gently mix garlic, vegetables and remaining ingredients into the couscous. Garnish salad with an additional sprig of fresh oregano.

  1. Could you list the calorie and fat content of your recipes? That would be a big help to some of us.

    Thank you.

  2. Could you please check the measurements? Is it 1/3 cup olives or 1/2 cup olives — 75 ml is 1/2 cup. Also the water measure of 300 ml is 2 1/4 cups, not 1 1/4 cups. Please confirm. This looks like a yummy salad! Thanks.
