A vibrant and flavoursome salad with all the Christmas colours, this is the perfect side for a burst of freshness.

Tips & Tricks
  • Add some dried stock powder to the couscous cooking water for extra flavour.
  • Quickly pickle your onions for a burst of colour and extra flavour. Add the sliced red onion to a small pot with some Pams White Vinegar and a few tablespoons of Pams Brown Sugar and simmer for five minutes before stirring through the salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag Pams Couscous 500g
  • 2 Tbsp cumin seeds
  • 3 Pams Carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 Pams Red Onion, finely sliced into rings
  • 2 Pams Oranges, sliced into small segments
  • 1 handful mint, roughly torn

Method

  1.  Finely dice one of the red onions. Add a big glug of olive oil to a large fry pan over medium heat and add the diced onion, cumin seeds and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the onion is golden and soft. 
  2.  Add the couscous to the pan and stir to coat. Pour over 2 cups of boiling water and remove from heat, cover with a lid and leave to steam for at least 5 minutes. 
  3. Uncover the couscous and fluff up with a fork, breaking up any lumps. Leave to cool.
  4. Place the cooled couscous into a large serving dish and douse generously with olive oil. Mix through the carrot, orange segments, remaining red onion (sliced in rings) and mint.
