My couscous salad for Summer 2011 / 2012 ...

I made this recipe up this week to serve with the Moroccan chicken that John cooked on the BBQ ...

(the Moroccan chicken was simply Masterfoods Moroccan Seasoning sprinkled over strips of chicken breast and left for 5 or 10 minutes ;-) but it is really good!!

My Summer Couscous ...

1 cup couscous
1/2 red capsicum, diced
2 sticks of celery, sliced thinly
1 medium red onion, diced
2 tablespoons sliced black olives
1 Lebanese cucumber, peeled, deseeded and diced
1/2 block low fat Feta, cubed
1 tomato, diced
handful fresh mint, chopped
handful coriander, chopped
juice of 1 lemon
handful flaked almonds

Prepare couscous by placing in a bowl and pouring over 1 cup hot water, fluff with fork after a few minutes.

Prepare all other ingredients (except lemon juice and herbs) and add to a large bowl, mix in couscous and then add herbs and mix and pour over lemon juice and mix again.

Enjoy ... this served us for 4 serves, adjust ingredients according to how you like it :-)

Oh and as it is served each person can add a dollop of Farmers Union Greek Style Natural Yoghurt!!
