    About this recipe: Couscous salads are perfect for packed lunches, picnics and light summer meals. This is a spicy, aromatic salad with loads of fresh herbs. This is my interpretation of tabbouleh - enjoy!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 700ml water
    • 350g couscous
    • 110g crumbled feta cheese
    • 1 fresh jalapeno or green chilli, chopped
    • 1/2 cucumber, diced
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 8 tablespoons chopped spring onions
    • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
    • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:10min soaking  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Bring the water to the boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the couscous. Cover and let stand until the couscous absorbs the water entirely, about 10 minutes; fluff with a fork.
    2. While the couscous soaks, stir the feta cheese, chilli, cucumber, spring onion, mint, basil, coriander, parsley, cumin, cayenne pepper and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the prepared couscous and mix well.
