COUS COUS SALAD

Cous cous salad is refreshing and filling and can be eaten as a meal by itslef. You can add soo many things to this salad and i have given it my own innovative touch by flavouring it with cumin powder and adding strawberries to it!!!! You need a lot of lemon juice for this as cous cous tends to be quite bland and needs a lot of flavoring to make it delicious!! Its an excellent party salad as it can be made before hand and it even keeps a few days in the refrigerator without spoiling.So here we go with the recipe
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup of cous cous (make according to the instructions in the box….)
1/2 teaspoon or more of cumin powder
1/4 cup of lemon juice
1/4 cup each of diced cucumber, radish, carrot, onion, and capsicum
1/4 cup each of finely chopped parsley and mint leaves
a few strawberries chopped fine
a few dates, chopped fine
a little extra virgin spanish olive oil for drizzling
a good pinch of black pepper
METHOD:
Let the cous cous cool down and then add all the chopped vegetables, and the pepper. Add the lemon juice and some olive oil. Check seasoning and keep in the refrigerator at least for an hour so that all the flavours mingle.
Serve with an extra drizzle of olive oil
