This tasty side dish is full of fresh Middle Eastern flavours. Israeli couscous (also known as pearl couscous or Ptitim) is a larger version of regular couscous made from wheat that has a lovely bite to it. I love using it in salads that are a little chunky like this one.
I love the combination of feta, mint and pomegranate – they taste so fresh together. This side dish would go well with so many things, like fish with sesame, pistachio and harissa crust or Arabian roast chicken, pomegranate sauce and pilav. You can get Israeli couscous in gourmet food stores, health food stores or Middle Eastern supermarkets.
