Cucumber Pear and Couscous Salad

Cucumber Pear and Couscous Salad myfavouritepastime.comI made this salad for lunch yesterday. Pear, cucumber and couscous, topped with crumbled Feta cheese and roasted walnuts. I use Bartlett pears. They were very juicy and sweet. Today we’ve started the day with a drizzle but the temperatures are still awesome. I wish you a fantastic day!
