Couscous salad is a delicious dish which goes well with meat. If you do not have dried apricots, you may use raisins or dried cranberries instead.
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups couscous
1 tablespoon olive oil
75g chopped dried apricots
2 cups baby spinach leaves
75g blanched, lightly roasted almonds or pistachios
75g feta cheese
75g roasted red capsicum, cut into small strips
Place the apricots and chicken stock in a medium sized saucepan over high heat. Bring it to a boil. After, remove from heat and add the couscous and the olive oil. Cover the pan for five minutes. Allow the couscous to absorb the oil.
Meanwhile, roughly chop the baby spinach leaves, almonds and feta cheese. Once the couscous has rested, transfer it to a salad bowl. Add the baby spinach leaves. Let it stand for 10-15 minutes. After, stir in the almonds, feta cheese and capsicums. Gently toss until combined. Serve immediately.
