Deliciously light summer salad. I usually add grilled chicken at the end, to make a substantial work lunch. I always add more lemon as well, as I love lemon. This recipe is from a Sydney chef, Bill Granger, but I have changed it a bit. Original recipe is to serve cold, I prefer it warm.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook couscous as per packet instructions.

  3. Dice cucumber, skin and all.
  4. Finely chop spring onions.

This was like a no-fuss tabouli. Super easy and just as tasty as tabouli. I took the other reviewers advice and added oregano, cumin and garlic. I used 1 c. couscous.
