Cheddar Couscous Salad

My type of cooking is simple and affordable. Food is something I always budget for. For example, this Cheddar Couscous Salad is budget-friendly and super healthy.  Eaten as a meal or side dish, this recipe satisfies any picky eater of the family.

Couscous on its own is rather bland, but you can jazz it up with feta, herbs and chickpeas. For my Cheddar Couscous Salad, I’ve added a splash of lemon juice, Kalamata olives, parsley and cheddar cheese. You’ll love the fluffiness of the couscous mixed with a healthy mix of fresh peppers, tomatoes and onions. You can also try out my Nigella’s Tomato and Horseradish Salad here.

You love this recipe and what I’ve paired this with. Next up: lamb steak with Tikka Masala.
