Summer Couscous Salad
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
12 ingredients
4 servings
An absolutely fantastic summer salad. Nice on its own, but also lovely with a piece of barbecued meat. Recipe source is a small booklet called 'Simple Summer Food' that came along with the June addition (06) of the British 'Good Food' magazine. Although this is not a traditional Middle Eastern recipe, I included it to my African recipes for the Zaar World Tour, as it includes couscous and chickpeas and the whole dish certainly tastes Mediterranean.
