Mediterranean Couscous with Feta Cheese, Tuna, Tomato and Onion with a Lemon Vinaigrette 

Recipe created by Paulette “Polly” Motzko. 

 Another great variation that would add extra fiber and protein to the couscous dish, is to add 1 cup of cooked cannellini beans.

 This is so wonderful for a Fresh & Light lunch or dinner with a salad and it is quick too. You can put it together in a matter of minutes!
