Couscous salad

Couscous salad

A hearty couscous salad that is so simple to make. For a slightly different flavour, use the zest and juice of one lime. Serve with plain grilled chicken or fish for an easy summer meal.

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Cover the couscous with twice its volume of hot water and leave to soak for 10 minutes.

  2. Mix together with the remaining ingredients and leave to stand for 30 minutes to let the flavours develop.

  3. Serve at room temperature.
