Method

  1. Place the couscous in to a large heatproof bowl, add the boiling water and mix to combine. Cover the bowl either with a lid or foil and set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a fry pan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 2 minutes or until onions become soft. Add the cauliflower and continue to sauté for another minute or so, until the cauliflower is just tender, be sure not to overcook. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Return to the couscous and fluff with a fork to separate all the grains.
  4. Add the couscous to a serving bowl along with the cooked onion and cauliflower. Add all remaining ingredients and toss together. Season with a little salt.
  5. Either serve as a warm salad or cover and place in the refrigerator to chill and serve as a cold salad*.

Recipe note: If serving as a cold salad, we suggest to add the pistachios just before serving so they don’t become too soft.

* For a gluten free option you can swap the couscous for cooked quinoa instead.
