Fisheaters easy recipe thread

I love brussel sprouts as well but they are off the menu for now.  :'(  A quick easy way to prepare them was in an orange glaze with dried fruit and pecans.  (I can post if you want.)  Right before I got ill, I bought 2 kilos with the intentions of enjoying them prepared in that way but sadly, they rotted away in the fridge.  :( 

So, I'm struggling to find things to eat that suit my new diet and are appealing.  This recipe was in a kidney failure book but it suits any diet.  It was filling and tasty.  Thought I'd share in case anyone is looking for easy sides.

Base of salad:
1/2 cup uncooked couscous cooked in 3/4 cup water OR follow the directions on the box on how much water to cook it in

Veggies:
1 medium English cucumber; chopped into bite sized pieces
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup sweet onion, diced
2 tablespoons black olives

Seasoning:
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Your choice of Mrs. Dash flavor OR if you can add salt, salt to your taste as well as your own spice mix
1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar  (A good balsamic would be excellent but since this is high potassium, not used here.  But I would suggest it.)
2 tablespoons of crumbled feta

Directions:
Prepare all the veggies and set aside.
At the same time, cook the couscous according to directions.  While it cools, be sure to fluff it up.
Add chopped veggies and parsley to the couscous.
Add in oil, vinegar, seasonings and feta.  Mix well.
Refrigerate for an hour and then serve.
