Mediterranean Cous Cous Salad

I love Antipasto – in fact, I have on more than one occasion pledged I could live on it for the rest of my life and still love it just as much after ten years of eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner – as I do today. That is how this Cous Cous salad was born – from my love of Mediterranean food. This side salad would go perfectly with grilled lamb, roast chicken and pork dishes. Serve it with lemon and/or lime wedges and you have yourself a super simple, flavour packed side dish!
