17 May Couscous salad for busy lives
Ive just made a really nice couscous salad that will keep for a few days in the fridge and is a quick and healthy ‘grab’ for on the go lifestyles
Combine chopped tomato, capsicum, coriander, mint leaves, spring onion, cucumber – add as much as you like of each – my total amount equaled about a cup.
3/4 uncooked couscous – add a chicken stock cube, 1 cup hot water, 1/2 teaspoon butter – leave to ‘fluff’ and stir occasionally.
Once the couscous cools add the chopped vegies, stir through.
Add 1 tabs lemon juice, 1 1/2 tabs olive oil, 1 teas red wine vinegar – shake up and stir through the lot. Its ready to eat at this point or pop in in the fridge the flavours will infuse and it will be yummy for days to come!
To complete the meal add a hard boiled egg, or a can of tuna or salmon and you’ve got a well rounded, tasty, healthy meal.
