Pearl Couscous and Zucchini Salad with Tomato Vinaigrette
This hearty salad was inspired by a recipe in the book “Shaya” by New Orleans chef Alon Shaya. Tomato paste browned with garlic in olive oil forms a rich base for the dressing. Thinly sliced fresh zucchini adds subtle crunch while tomatoes offer succulence, and salty, tangy feta ties everything together. Serve as a light vegetarian main course or as a side to grilled or roasted meats.
