Recipe: Mediterranean Chickpea and Couscous Bowl with Yogurt Dressing

All through the season, we’re featuring Winter White cheeses—those wedges, wheels, and blocks that are bright as snow and keep you cozy in the cold. To celebrate these cheeses, we are sharing some of our private recipes, prepared by Murray’s head chef David Elkins. This week’s spotlight is a grain bowl from the new Made By Murray’s menu that he dreamed up for our store in the West Village. It’s called the Israeli Chickpea Bowl with Yogurt Dressing, and it looks like this:

The Mediterranean vibes are strong with this one, as is often the case when you’ve got feta and olive oil in the same place. You can buy each of those ingredients individually, but we recommend a jar of Meredith Dairy Marinated Feta, one of our all-around favorite cheeses. It comes bathed in premium olive oil , with sprigs of herbs right there in the jar to infuse even more flavor.

If you’re using Meredith Dairy Feta, simply measure out your olive oil directly from the jar when preparing the dressing. This is one Winter White recipe that’ll have you feeling like it’s summer by the sea.
