    tigerduck's Note:

    An absolutely fantastic summer salad. Nice on its own, but also lovely with a piece of barbecued meat. Recipe source is a small booklet called 'Simple Summer Food' that came along with the June addition (06) of the British 'Good Food' magazine. Although this is not a traditional Middle Eastern recipe, I included it to my African recipes for the Zaar World Tour, as it includes couscous and chickpeas and the whole dish certainly tastes Mediterranean.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    couscous and vegetables

    dressing

    garnish

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Tip couscous into bowl, pour over boiling stock and stir. Cover and leave for 4-5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Mix dressing ingredients together.
    3. 3
      Fluff up the couscous with a fork, stir in the chickpeas and half of the dressing. Pile on a large serving dish.
    4. 4
      Heat oil in a griddle pan or a large frying pan. Fry the courgette slices over high heat for 2-3 mins until dark golden. Drain on kitchen paper and season with salt and pepper. Put the tomatoes, cut sized down, into the pan and cook for 2 minutes until tinged brown underneath. Remove from the pan and season with salt and pepper. Top the couscous with courgettes, then the tomatoes.
    5. 5
      If the pan is dry, pour in a little more oil, heat it up and add the halloumi. Fry for 2-3 mins, turning until crisp and sizzled brown. Pile on top of the tomatoes and pour over the remaining dressing. Garnish with mint leaves.

      I really enjoyed the fresh, light summery flavours in this, and the minty lime dressing was really nice with the halloumi. I wouldn't have minded a bit of spice with the couscous though, and ended up having a dollop of harissa on the side of the plate. Next time I think I'd add some chilli and coriander - but there will definitely be a next time!
