This is a great Mediterranean-style salad in warm Spring days. It is a variation from the Lebanese tabouli salad. I use cous cous instead of bulgur, and the result is more fulfilling.

The salad is very refreshing and tastes great on its own or as the perfect side dish with grilled meat.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4 servings



Ingredients
1 bunch of fresh parsley
1/2 cup of cous cous
1/2 french onion
2 truss tomato
1 lemon
2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and pepper
1 packet of garlic crouton crackers

Method
Fill 3/4 cup of water in a sauce pan. Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and bring it to boil.
Stir in the cous cous and turn off the heat.
Cover the sauce pan and let it stand for 3 minutes.
Fluffy the cous cous with a fork and set aside to cool.



Place 3/4 bunch of parsley in the food processor.
Add in the 1 tablespoon olive oil, diced french onion, 1/2 of lemon juice and blend coarsely together.



Place the mixture in a large salad bowl. Add in the diced tomato and the rest of the olive oil.
Add the cooled cous cous into the salad. Toss to mix well.
Topped with remaining hand-chopped parsley on top.



Drizzle the rest of the lemon juice on top.
Season with sea salt and black pepper.
Serve with garlic crouton crackers for added texture.



It is a very easy salad to prepare and taste is so good in sandwiches or alongside some heavy grilled meat.

It is just a great all-rounder salad.
