Couscous salad

Sharing is caring!

This super quick and easy couscous salad makes a great lunchbox filler or is delicious served as a tasty veggie packed side dish at a BBQ or summer picnic.

Ready in under 10 minutes this is real food, fast.

You’ll need to make up the couscous as per the packet instructions – usually this just involves pouring boiling water over the couscous and waiting for it to all absorb and the couscous fluff up.

I use around 100g of couscous to make up 2 lunch boxes.

Once the couscous is ready stir in 50g cubed feta, a handful of chopped sun dried tomatoes, a handful of chopped chargrilled antipasti courgettes, and a handful of sliced peppadew peppers.

Toss in a handful of chopped herbs – whatever you like, mint, coriander, parsley and basil all work nicely.
