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.
1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
1 bunch fresh coriander, chopped
1 red onion, very finely chopped
1 lemon, zest and juice
½ cucumber, de-seeded and finely diced
30g/1oz sunflower seeds, toasted
30g/1oz sesame seeds, toasted
4 tbsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Cover the couscous with twice its volume of hot water and leave to soak for 10 minutes.
Mix together with the remaining ingredients and leave to stand for 30 minutes to let the flavours develop.
Serve at room temperature.
