Fresh, simple and extremely healthy is probably the best way to describe this spicy couscous salad.
Spicy Couscous Salad Ingredients
250 grams of couscous
400 ml of water
20 cherry tomatoes
1 red chilli
half a cucumber
1 handful of fresh thyme (and flowers if available)
1 handful of spinach leaves
juice from one lemon
2 grated carrots
4 table spoons of oliver oil
salt and pepper to taste
Add the couscous to a glass bowl and pour over the water, stir briefly then cover with a plate and set aside for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile finely/roughly cut the remaining ingredients and add to a large serving bowl. Squeeze over the lemon juice and olive oil and mix thoroughly. After the 10 minutes are up stir in the couscous to the salad and season to taste.
I am a thyme addict so if possible i like to use flowering thyme in this recipe because it not only tastes great, it also looks fantastic.
