Zesty couscous salad

This is such a vibrant salad with Moroccan inspired falvours, full of fresh herbs & some little sweet bursts from the currants! I love using herbs & spices to flavour my food to add a little extra something something. The Moroccan seasoning added a bold flavour & paired so well with the fresh salad ingredients. Yes... salads don't need to be boring & can pack a punch too... such a winner to spice up your salads! x


Zesty couscous salad recipe

Serves 4

Time: 20 minutes


What you need:

1 cup wholemeal couscous

1 cup mixed herbs - I used parsley & mint

2 medium carrots, grated

1 cup chickpeas

1/4 cup currants

1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted

Dressing: 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil + 1/2 lemon juice & zest + 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar + 1 teaspoon Moroccan seasoning + salt/pepper to taste

How to:

Cook the couscous as per packet instructions. I like doing the absorption method in a bowl with boiling water & then covering the top with a lid/tea towel & letting it sit for ~10-15 minutes. Then fluff up the couscous with a fork & set aside to cool. Prepare the salad ingredients & the dressing - I usually shake the dressing ingredients together in a jar. Once the couscous has cooled, mix everything together. Serve with some extra fresh herbs on top & a wedge of lemon.
