Israeli Tabouli

1 cup Israeli couscous* (see below comments)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup lemon, zested and juiced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
3 to 6 scallions, chopped
3 tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 cucumber, peeled and diced

Place 1 cup couscous in boiling water and follow packaging instructions. Once cooled, transfer to container and add all other ingredients.

Additional ingredients you might wish to add in include arugula, zucchini, pickles, black olives, etc. Not all of these additional ingredients mix well together, so pick and choose which ones work! 

*Optional, to use whole wheat and/or a flavored couscous. For flavored couscous I highly recommend the Near East Basil & Herb Pearled Couscous. It was always hard to find in the grocery store, and I'm happy it's finally available on Amazon!
