  • 10 olives- slice half of them

  • 1/4 tsp salt

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a large bowl, the couscous should be no more than 4-5cm deep- add the couscous, parsley, cucumber, tomatoes, garlic, sliced olives, salt, stock powder, lemon juice and olive oil.

Step 2

Pour boiling water onto the couscous until the water is 5mm above the top level of the couscous. The couscous should move freely when you shake the bowl.

Cover the bowl with glad wrap and leave to steam for 3 mins.

Step 3

After 3 mins, uncover and lightly fork through the couscous. Start on the top and fork to the bottom. Don’t scoop the grains but rather fork through by running the top-side of the fork over the grains.

Do this with all the couscous by loosening the grains.

Step 4

Cover the bowl again with glad wrap and steam for a further 2mins.

Taste for seasoning and stir the mustard through. Add more olive oil to the salad if you like. 

Arrange the avocado and feta cheese over the top, finish with crispy onion.

Step 5

This salad is ideal served with appetiser plates, grilled meats and vegetables, braises and stews and anything with a bit of sauce or grease to it.
