I used to do loads of cooking but since we had Little O most of the food preparation in our household falls to Mr O as I tend to be trying to wrangle the little fella into bed at prime dinner making time. I decided I was definitely going to make at least one meal this week, even if it was a quick one. Enter this easy salad. Of course just as I finished making it Little O woke up and refused to go to bed for another two hours so I didn’t get to eat any until 10pm but it I enjoyed it none the less.
Mr O and I are continuing to work hard on our healthy eating so I’ve been making loads of salads. This couscous based one has been such a hit that it’s become an almost overnight lunch/dinner staple. The reason it’s called a “jewel” salad is because all the pretty colourful ingredients look like little jewels dotted through the couscous.
