In this summery, healthy Israeli couscous salad, roasted cherry tomatoes combine with herbs, Parmesan, and lemon vinaigrette. Serve it next to grilled chicken or an easy Lamb recipe.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 375°F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss together the cherry tomatoes with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Roast the tomatoes until lightly caramelized and just barely shriveled, about 15 minutes.
  2. 2In a saucepan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil then add the couscous. Stir until the couscous begins to turn golden and smells toasty, 4 to 5 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups water and a big pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer 13 minutes, or until the couscous is tender. If there is any liquid remaining, drain it off, then transfer the couscous to a serving bowl.
  3. 3Toss the couscous with the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Gently mix in the herbs and roasted tomatoes. Scatter the cheese over the top and serve.
