This Salad is a Mediterranean spin with a bright lemon dressing, pops of tomato, juicy crunch of cucumber and a good hit of fresh herbs.

A bright lemon dressing is a natural pairing here. No surprises in the ingredients! If you don’t have Dijon Mustard, sub with ordinary yellow mustard. And the lemon juice can be substituted with apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar.




lemon dressing


    Step 1

    Sauté garlic and onion in a large saucepan or small pot over medium high heat until the onion is translucent and starting to brown.

    Step 2

    Add couscous and stir, cooking for 1 minute, to coat it in the flavoured oil. Add the stock/broth and water. Then once it starts simmering, place the lid on and turn the heat down to medium low.

    Step 3

    Cook for 10 minutes until the liquid is absorbed and the couscous is cooked through but still firm.

    Step 4

    Cool – Use a fork to separate the couscous, then transfer into a large bowl to cool. The couscous will stick together into a big block. But don’t worry, it will separate when tossed with the dressing.

    Step 5

    Dressing – Shake the ingredients together in a jar.

    Step 6

    Toss! Add all the salad ingredients and fresh herbs into the bowl with the couscous then toss well with the Dressing. Serve immediately, at room temperature!
