The best thing is to Google BBC Good Food Recipes and put 'couscous salad' in the search and you should get lots- it will even say if easy etc. I use it all the time.

In the couscous I mix finely chopped red onion, pomegranate, cucumber, tomatoes, fresh parsley and mint. Plus to taste ground black pepper and juice from lemon and lime, and a drizzle of olive oil.

Thanks. Sorry, I hadn't heard of it before blush [forriner]

That sounds delicious ihearsounds.

It is. I could live on it.
Depending what your having it with, it can be a bit dry, so I do a yoghurt sauce with garlic in.

I personally prefer it when you make Couscous and then when it is still warm., put some tomatoes in it, and a little bit of roasted nuts (any) and some raisins, thats perfect! Maybe a little bit of cucumber or some olives?!

Well, a while later, all I can say ihearsounds is it is perfect! I used what you did but swapped pomegranate for dried apricots (because there aren't any pomegranates in the corner shop and non at home and the 24/7 Tescos nearby is shut due to a fire hmm) and also used roasted line nuts. It's tasty (to me).

I do it almost the same as ihearsounds but with cubes of feta cheese and olives rather than pomegranates. I add roasted pine nuts too just like you did herring.

Thinking about it it's basically a greek salad mixed with couscous...
