Spiced Couscous Salad

Spiced Couscous Salad

Serves: 4 Persons              Time: 20 min

This is quick and easy to prepare and you can use almost any variation of salad ingredients or curry paste flavors which make it different every time.


4 teaspoons Indian Curry Paste ( I use e.g. Balti paste which is mild)
12 ready to eat dried apricots – chopped
300 ml vegetable stock
300 g couscous
4 spring onions
A choice of any salad veggies of your choice
4 tablespoons blanched almonds – toasted
flat leaf parsley – chopped
150 ml natural yoghurt mixed with chopped parsley


Mix the curry paste and apricots with a little stock until the paste has dissolved.

Pour remaining stock over couscous in a separate bowl. Cover and leave to stand for five minutes

Fluff up couscous with a fork and stir through spring onions and salad veggies, toasted almonds and half the parsley. Mix the rest of the parsley with the yoghurt and drizzle over the main dish.
