    1. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the couscous. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Scrape the couscous into a mixing bowl; fluff with a fork and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
    2. Once the couscous is cold make the dressing by whisking together the salt, black pepper, red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard in a small bowl. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while continuing to whisk until the oil has thickened the dressing.
    3. Fold the cucumber, feta cheese, spring onions, parsley and pine nuts into the couscous. Pour the dressing over the top and stir until evenly moistened. Chill 30 minutes before serving.
