Couscous green bean salad : wk16/1

Serves 4 : Easy : Quick
200gm couscous
400ml boiling veg stock
75gms Turkish (soft dried) apricots, snipped into pea-size pieces
Juice and rind of 1 lemon

200gm frozen green beans, thawed
20 cocktail tomatoes, halved
6-8 large spring onions, sliced

400gms smoked turkey

Put the couscous, apricots, lemon juice and rind and stock in a bowl.
Cover and stand for 10 minutes.
Fluff up the couscous with a fork.

Stir through the thawed green beans, tomato halves and spring onions.

Serve with smoked turkey.

…or smoked chicken, or a piece of grilled fish. Or just serve the salad on its own.
When you make couscous, measure the stock very carefully. If you put in too much liquid it becomes sticky and heavy.
