Cous Cous Salad

Cous Cous salad

Cook 2 cups of couscous as directed on packet. I use a chicken stock cube to give more flavour. Cool…..then add chopped yellow, green and red capsicum (1 each). Finely chopped red onion, 2/3 cup of dried currants. About an hour before serving add ¾ cup mixed chopped coriander, parsley and mint and the dressing below. Dressing can be made day ahead…


Whisk together in a screw top jar

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 crushed garlic cloves

2 teaspoons honey

1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander powder

¼ teaspoons nutmeg

Salt and pepper.

½ cup – 1 cup olive oil……original recipe said 1- 1 ½ cups but its too oily.

I’ve also added pine nuts, chopped apricots, slivered almonds etc at other times….
