Couscous Salad with Asparagus, Feta, Spinach and Lemon

1 cup couscous
Salt-about ½ tsp. for boiling water
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 teaspoon olive oil
8 asparagus spears cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cup packed fresh spinach
Juice of 1 large lemon
1/3 cup feta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium sauce pan, bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add the salt. Stir in couscous. Cook until
tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
In a small sauce pan, saute garlic in olive oil. Add in asparagus pieces. Saute for 3-4 minutes.
Stir in spinach. Cook until asparagus is tender and the spinach shrinks down.
Put the couscous in a medium bowl and add in the vegetables. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over
the orzo and vegetables. Stir. Season with salt and pepper. Taste-add more lemon juice if you
wish. The lemon I used was huge, so I only needed to use one lemon. If you need more juice, go
Sprinkle feta cheese over the top of the salad. Serve warm. (I also liked the salad cold.)
