Recipe of couscous cherry and feta salad of 12-06-2019 [Updated on 13-06-2019]

L'cherry and feta couscous salad it is a somewhat particular but definitely very good recipe. As you will remember from past years, when the summer period arrives I like to prepare delicious salads and in recent years more and more often I have started to combine various types of fruit with normal salad vegetables. I find it a fantastic way to prepare light, tasty, delicious and original dishes. I realized, however, that I had never prepared any pasta salads with fruit (where by pasta I also mean rice or other cereals;)).
So this is my first experiment: cherry and feta couscous salad, a very special combination for a delicious and very quick first course that I will repeat as soon as possible;)

Method

Meanwhile, lightly toast the hazelnuts in a non-stick pan and chop them coarsely.
Peel and grate the ginger and mix it with the lemon peel, then wash and pit the cherries.

Put the washed rocket with hazelnuts and cherries in a bowl.
