You can also make this great side with carrots, spinach, zucchini, or any other fresh vegetables.
4 small beets (about 6 ounces)
1/2 cup fresh green peas
1/2 cup (1-inch) diagonally cut asparagus
1/2 cup chopped yellow squash
3 cups cooked couscous
1/2 cup quartered radishes
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Leave roots and 1 inch stems on beets; scrub with a brush. Place in a medium saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain; cool. Trim off beet roots; rub off skins. Cut into quarters.
Steam peas, asparagus, and squash, covered, 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Combine beets, peas, asparagus, squash, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
Wonderfully fresh! The green peas, radishes, and feta in particularly made for delectable little bites. This was also surprisingly more decadent than I thought, thanks to the olive oil and coarse salt. Would make a fine main dish, or a side to veggie burgers.
