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.

Use your favourite ingredients to dress up this salad, and replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock for a meatless version. If you don't want to use the stove, heat the stock using the microwave oven.
