Couscous Salad

450g (1lb) instant couscous
575ml/1pt boiling water
3 lemons
300ml/0.5 pt olive oil
1 red onion
1 sweet red pepper
1 sweet yellow pepper
bunch of mint
salt and pepper

Make the couscous: put it in a large heatproof bowl and stir
continously while pouring over the boiling water. Keep stirring
for at least 3 mins until cool, otherwise the grains will clump
together. Juice the lemons and stir the lemon juice into the
couscous, followed by the olive oil, continuing to stir gently.
all the liquid will be absorbed in due course. Leave to stand
while you chop the onion and peppers into small dice. Incorporate
them into the couscous. Coarsely chop the mint leaves and add
these. season well with salt and pepper. Refrigerate briefly
before serving, but do not chill too long or the oil will solidify.

Heap into the centre of a warmed serving dish and serve with grilled
lamb.
