I make this every year for cheap-but-wonderful Christmas presents for family and friends. And I always make sure that there is enough made so that I can keep at least six jars for myself. This is brilliant on cheese sandwiches, in a chili, or to pep up some chicken wings.
Tricolour Cous Cous Salad. Serves 4: - 200g Cous cous (dry weight), cooked. - 250g Cherry Tomatoes, halved. - 2 Avocados, peeled, stoned, chopped. - 150g Ball Mozzarella, torn into chunks. - Handful of rocket and/or spinach leaves. To dress: 1 tbsp Pesto, Juice of half a lemon, Good drizzle olive oil. Top with basil and black pepper. For a main course, serve with warm wholemeal pitta breads and some homemade hummous (chickpeas + garlic + lemon juice = easy peasey hoummous).
