This is a really quick dish. Start out by boiling 1 cup of water.

Once it's boiling, toss in 2/3 cup couscous (I get bulk stuff from Whole Foods - it's heck of a lot cheaper than boxed stuff).

Cover, and remove from heat. That's pretty much it for the couscous part.

The rest of the ingredients. Depulp and chop 1 tomato (or 2-3 Romas). Chop 4 oz feta into 1cm cubes (half of the package shown here). Open 1 can (2.25 oz) sliced black olives.

Throw it all into a mixing bowl. The nice part of this recipe (other than how quick it is) is that you can go cheap with supermarket ingredients as shown here, or you can splurge and get some good Kalamata olives and something like mild sheep's feta, and using the same recipe get something that's a cut above.

Toss with some olive oil and red wine vinegar. I don't really measure. I would guess like 3 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons vinegar. Adjust to your taste.

Finally, dump in the couscous, which should be done by now, and stir with a fork to fluff it up.

You could also throw in some chopped toasted walnuts and/or chopped fresh basil if you have some lying around.

It took longer to upload these pictures and annotate them then it did to make the dish!
