Salmon and Mint Cous Cous

This is a lovely, simple summer salad that takes little time to knock up so that you can enjoy the sun - when it decides to appear.

If you aren't a fish fan, replace with sliced ham, cooked chicken, anything really. Add some toasted almonds to give flavour and crunch.

Salmon and Mint Cous Cous
Serves 4

250g Cous Cous
250ml boiling water
Cherry tomatoes, halved
Half a cucumber, peeled and diced
6 spring onions
2 fillets of cooked salmon
1 clove of garlic, crushed
3 tbsp olive oil
2 lemons, squeezed
A handful of parsley and mint each, chopped
Salt and pepper

1 - Put the Cous Cous into a large mixing bowl, pour on the hot water and cover. Leave for 5 minutes then fluff up with a fork.
2 - To make the dressing, mix together the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and seasoning.
3 - Stir the chopped veg, fish and dressing together. Finally, stir in the fresh herbs and serve with crusty bread or toasted pitta bread and more wedges of lemon.
