This began as just a way of using up the leftover couscous after our Quick Meatball Couscous but it actually worked so well that I'd make it again !
Olive, Cheese & Couscous salad
several crisp lettuce leaves
a handful of olives
a few tablespoonfuls of cold leftover couscous with red peppers and onions
a slice of smoked ham
some cubes of Gouda with cumin seeds
a drizzle of Wagamama spicy chilli, coriander & ginger dressing (which I reviewed here but you could make your own)
a handful of Fresh Gourmet croutons of your choice (Cheese & Garlic ones for me please !)
Roughly shred the lettuce with your hands and arrange on a plate.
Scatter over slices of cucumber, roughly chopped pieces of ham, cubes of cheese and olives.
Place a little pile of cold couscous in the middle of the plate and drizzle the whole thing with spicy dressing.
Finish off with a generous sprinkling of crunchy croutons at the last minute.
