Maroque's giant couscous salad (a Maroque recipe)

Rate and Review

ready in 30 mins


This very easy salad is refreshing and light. It makes a great accompaniment to barbecued food


200g Giant couscous (soaked overnight in cold water)
1/2 Cucumber, seeded and chopped
1/2 red pepper, seeded and chopped 
2 sticks of celery, chopped
1 tbsp parsley chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste


1. After soaking the couscous overnight or at least 4 hours, rinse well in cold water and put in a colander to drain. I have found this is the easiest way to deal with the giant couscous. If the couscous still looks a bit wet, turn it out onto a clean tea towel to dry.

2. Add the cucumber, pepper, celery and parsley to a large bowl and mix in the drained couscous.

3. Mix the lemon juice and olive oil together and add to the salad, salt and pepper to taste.

4. Serve with grilled meats or fish, it also make a nice salad for a lunch box. You can change the parsley for mint or fresh coriander if you fancy a change.
