- 1/4 cup feta
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp finely grated lemon rind, plus 2 tsp lemon juice

3. In a medium bowl, combine the couscous, grilled vegetables, crumbled feta, olive oil, rind and lemon juice.

Feta can dry out quickly when removed from its brine, so it's important to keep it stored in the brine in a storage container and in the refrigerator. Use within 3-5 days of purchase.
