Cous Cous Salad with Caperberries


250g of fine cous cous

2 large tomatoes chopped in cubes

Half a cucumber diced

Half a red onion, diced

A handful of parsley, washed and chopped

A handful of mint, washed and chopped

Roughly 15 capers or caperberries

Juice of a whole lemon

A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


Put the cous cous in a pyrex bowl and pour on 300 mls of boiling water or a light stock.  Leave for 10 minutes then fluff up with a fork.

Meanwhile prepare the other ingredients and place in a pretty serving bowl.  When the cous cous has cooled down, add to the bowl and stir thoroughly.

Great as a side salad with grilled or fried chicken pieces.
