    This is great for a party, with interesting textures and flavours combined in one delicious salad. Feel free to use vegetable stock if you want to make this a vegan dish. Leftovers store well refrigerated for several days.

    Wonderfully exotic and colourful, this vegetarian salad captures the flavours of ancient Persian cooking. Dates and sultanas are gently simmered with wine, spices and garlic, to flavour couscous, and then topped with roasted butternut and patty pan squashes, peppers and orange.

    This is a bright, cheery salad with a real Mediterranean feel and flavour. Couscous is mixed with pale green flageolet beans, then tossed with fresh green beans, tomatoes and cucumber in a piquant dressing made with sun-dried tomatoes. Serve as a main course for a delightful summer lunch.

    Couscous makes a brilliant base for a quick salad, as it only needs a brief soaking in hot stock (or water). Here it is combined with chickpeas, dates, oranges and pistachios for a Middle Eastern-style vegetarian dish.
