Couscous is a tasty, low-carb dish that's perfect for vegetarians and vegans. It's also easy to make at home!

This recipe for Mediterranean Couscous Salad with Roasted Eggplant is made with roasted red peppers, feta cheese, and fresh herbs. It’s great for a quick and healthy lunch or for any summer picnic or barbecue.

One of the grocery stores that I shop in has a readymade salad section. Their couscous salads always look so inviting.

I bought some the other day and can’t tell you how disappointing it was. It was flat and artificial tasting. I didn’t eat it. Instead, I started thinking about how I would have wanted it to taste and created my own.

One of the best things about this delicious and colorful salad how easily it’s thrown together. It’s a healthy salad that’s filled with big flavors, roasted eggplant, olives, feta, and roasted red peppers.

If you love couscous, I also make a great 10 minute Greek Style Couscous salad. These salads are really versatile, so feel free to add whatever herbs, cheeses or vegetables you want!

I hope you enjoy it!
