Super Easy And Delicious Couscous Salad
It was so hot this summer that I literally was reduced to stove top super quick cooking and BBQing (not the worst thing in the world really).
Organic couscous became my go to meal not only is it super easy its a completely satisfying and tasty meal.
After looking in the fridge and assessing the tastiest non cooking ingredients this recipe was made , other than the asparagus being pan cooked and the boiling water for the couscous I managed to stay relatively cool.
Possibly one of the easiest recipes on the planet and super quick, the one thing I highly recommend is that you use top quality olive oil I promise it makes a huge difference.
* This is a great article on olive oils and how to choose the right ones.
200g (6½oz) couscous
250ml (8fl oz) boiling water or stock
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
tsp rock salt
10 cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 cup chopped feta cheese
1/2 a cucumber chopped into bite size pieces (skin on or off )
1 bunch of asparagus chopped (ends removed and discarded)
Put the couscous in a large bowl and pour the boiling water over it.
Cover with a lid or a plate and set aside for 5 minutes.
fluff with a fork.
Place asparagus in a shallow pan 1/2 tsp of the olive oil and balsamic and cook on high for about 3 min
In a bowl mix all ingredients together with couscous
* Make a quick dressing of olive oil and balsamic to drizzle over top
