  • 1 tsp Tabasco (or similar chili sauce)
  • ½ bunch mint, fresh
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (or roasted sunflower seeds, to use as garnish)


  • The salad tastes best if prepared a few hours (or even the day before) but don’t be afraid to make it at the last minute if you don’t have time to prep ahead!
  • Cook the couscous by packet instructions, using vegetable broth for tastiest results. Here’s a foolproof method to get instant couscous just right: add the couscous to the salad bowl. Now pour hot vegetable broth onto it until the couscous is just covered. Lay a tea-towel over the top. After 3-4 minutes give it a little stir to make it fluffy. Cover again for 1 more minute.
  • In the meantime, grate the carrots and dice the cucumber, onions, tomatoes (fresh and sundried), mint and parsley.
  • Mix the lemon juice, tomato paste, olive oil, salt and pepper, tabasco sauce and chopped and grated veg and herbs with the cooked couscous.
  • Give it a good stir and boom! Add the seeds for garnish (if using). Good to go! How easy was that?!
