I hope everyone is enjoying their last days of summer break. Here is a quick, refreshing meal perfect for busy summer days full of fun in the sun. We ate this right after I prepared it at about room temperature. Then we ate the leftovers cool straight out of the refrigerator. I liked it both ways, but I very much preferred it cold. That makes it a great meal to make ahead when you know you will be in a time crunch for dinner. I also think it would pack well for lunches. You can even omit the chicken and serve this as a side dish. I am loving all of the possibilities!
Dairy-free notes: This could easily be made dairy free if you omit the feta cheese. You could replace the feta with a non-dairy cheese or maybe even olives. I used the Near East Toasted Pine Nut Couscous, which appears to be dairy-free.
