Learn how to make this delicious pearl couscous salad using freshly cooked couscous and a selection of colorful, tasty ingredients. A refreshing, healthy dish.


  • 1 cup (170g) pearl couscous
  • 2 cups (570ml) water
  • 1/4 finely chopped red onion
  • 3 chopped sundried tomatoes plus some oil from the jar
  • 10 pimento-stuffed green olives
  • Few drops lemon or lime juice
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Cook the pearl couscous following the directions on the back of the package.
  2. Drain the water off, then stir in the other ingredients.
  3. Chill until required then serve on a bed of salad leaves or with chicken or meat.


Feel free to adapt the above recipe. That is how I made the pearl couscous salad and it was very good but you can add anything you want.

Try chopped anchovies, chopped fresh mint leaves, fresh chopped tomatoes instead of the sun-dried kind, raisins, fried onions or anything else that appeals. Ham or bacon would work too, or even drained, canned tuna.

Keep any leftovers refrigerated for your lunch the following day. This makes a yummy lunch!
