The ingredients for this salad are best arranged in stripey layers inside a large shallow bowl or serving platter. Even if you switch up some of the ingredients it’s good practice with this salad to pick ones that are brightly and differently coloured for optimal “wow” factor.
-Israeli couscous (also called “pearl” or “giant” couscous) cooked in boiling water, drained and kept warm in a covered pot if possible
-Feta cheese crumbled
-Cherry tomatoes, halved
-Cubed chunks of chicken, marinated in Moroccan harissa paste* and grilled
-Sliced red onion
-Chopped cucumber tossed with fresh mint leaves
-Chopped black olives
Olive oil & lemon juice and season with salt and pepper
*If you can’t find harissa paste, you can make your own using tomato paste, and a combination of your favourite herbs and spices. Make sure it’s spicy!
