Invited to a summer pick nick or BBQ and want to bring a special side dish but don’t have too much time?
Try this delicious, less than 20 minute recipe for:
NICI’S COUS-COUS SALAD
(Was enough for a party of eight as one side dish)
250 g cous-cous
1 Tsp salt
7-10 Tbsp olive oil
6 Tbsp lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
300 – 400 g cherry tomatoes (diced)
1 leek (or 3 scallions) (cut into thin slices)
1 hand full fresh mint leaves
1 small dried red chili
2 garlic cloves crushed
Bring 250 ml water to the boil with 1 Tsp salt and 1 Tbsp olive oil. While stirring mix cous-cous into water, cover and take away from heat. Let sit for about 5-10 minutes, or until cous-cous is tender but firm to the bite. Stir until cous-cous has cooled a bit and won’t lump. Mix with rest of ingredients.
