Ingredients

Char-grilled vegetable, chicken and couscous salad
  • 1 1/2 cup (300g) couscous
  • 1 1/2 cup (375ml) boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cup (420g) drained mixed char-grilled vegetables
  • 1 cup fresh mint, lightly packed
  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, lightly packed
  • 1 1/2 cup (250g) shredded barbecued chicken
  • 1/2 cup (140g) greek-style yogurt
  • 1 medium_piece (140g) lemon, cut into wedges

Method

Char-grilled vegetable, chicken and couscous salad
  • 1
    Combine couscous, the water and oil in large heatproof bowl. Cover, stand 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with fork. Season to taste.
  • 2
    Chop vegetables and herbs coarsely.
  • 3
    Add chicken, vegetables and herbs to couscous in large bowl, toss to combine. Serve with yogurt and lemon wedges.

Notes

This salad will keep for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Pack yogurt and lemon wedges separately. You need about half a barbecued chicken. We used 2 x 280g jars of mixed char-grilled vegetables in oil (not the pickled variety); you can also buy marinated grilled vegetables from the delicatessen.
