This was one of those “duh” moments in the Home Chef Test Kitchen: Why hadn't we come up with such an obviously great idea sooner? Couscous mixed with garlic, topped with a fresh salad of feta, cucumbers, and tomatoes, and served with a creamy lemon parsley sauce on the side. Every bite brings the fresh and the flavorful… why didn't we think of this sooner? Order this one up, and you'll be glad we thought of it eventually.
