Couscous has got to be one of the simplest recipes out there – just add instant couscous to some hot stock, cover for 5 minutes and fluff up the cooked couscous with a fork. Apart from heating up the soup stock, there is no cooking involved. You can eat it on its own, or as a side dish. I served the couscous salad with an easy 15-minute grilled salmon for a fast, satisfying and complete meal.

I use cherry tomatoes, olives, spring onions and corn nibblets to dress up the couscous as they are no-cook and colourful. There must be a million ways to jazz up couscous, so use your favourite ingredients and creativity for this dish.

    OHH I really love couscous as well! Try cooking it in a different liquid instead of stock. I tried cooking in peach tea and it gives a different kick to a plain salad!
