Couscous, Cranberry, and Feta Salad – Cheap Packed School Lunch Idea

Two of my three kids aren’t that much into couscous, but the one who likes it, really, really likes it. Couscous tastes fine when eaten cold in most recipes, in my opinion.

1 package couscous
1/3 cup dried cranberries
2 teaspoons balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing, or to taste
1/2 cucumber, diced
1/2 cup toasted pecans
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
salt to taste

Prepare couscous according to package directions. Add cranberries. Fluff couscous with a fork and add balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing. Add cucumber, pecans, feta cheese and salt.
