handful salad

Photobucket

I love this salad, its quick and easy, tasty and gets better the longer you have it in the fridge! I call it handful salad because I use a handful (or two) of whats lying around.

ingredients
1/2 cup cous cous
1/2 boiled water
1 tbsp of oil
handful of fresh flat leaf parsley (I just snip in with scissors)
handful of fresh mint (I just snip in with scissors)
handful or two of sultanas
handful or two of dried cranberries
handful or two of chopped almonds
handful or two of sliced sundried tomatoes

method

1. Put the cous cous, oil and boiling water into a bowl and let sit for a few minutes.

2. Fluff the cous cous then throw in all the ingredients and toss. Salad is better left overnight as the sultanas and the cranberries plump up with the moisture from the cous cous.

notes: I love the sultanas and cranberries, creating the perfect blend of sweet and tart. Also most of these items sit in jars in my cupboard so its a quick and easy meal if you cant be bothered going to the shops.
