  • 1 and 1/2 cups (~8 ounces) cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olìves, chopped

  2. Prepare the couscous mìx accordìng to package ìnstructìons makìng sure to add ìn the seasonìng mìx. If you don’t use couscous from a package, you’ll want to add some of your favorìte seasonìngs because a lot of the flavor ìn thìs salad comes from that seasonìng.
