Tabouleh Salad with Grillies Cubes


Tabouleh is a traditional Mediterranean salad. A little tip that can go a long way is to chop the parsley by hand so it maintains its crispiness. Although this requires a bit more effort, the freshness is totally worth it. The addition of fresh Grillies cubes makes this salad irresistible.

  1. Place the couscous in a medium glass bowl and pour the boiling water over it.

  2. Add the lemon zest, salt and pepper and stir gently with a small spoon. Cover the bowl with cling film and allow to stand for 10 minutes. The couscous will have absorbed the water and fluff up. Allow to cool.
