This is a King of Salads. It is absolutely fabulous.With something for everyone it's heat can be controlled to let the other flavours shine through too.I couldn't stuff it in fast enough.
Preheat the oven to 220° C/425°F/Gas Mark 7
Prepare all the veg and put on a large baking tray. Mix up all the oil, basil, garlic and salt and pour over. Give a good rummage around to coat all the veg. Roast for about 40 mins or until the edges begin to char. Set aside to cool.
Whilst the veg are roasting make the dressing. Mix all the ingredients together. I use a little mini whisk. You could just use a fork. It's all in the wrist...Pour into a small jug.
Put the cous-cous into the bowl that you will be serving the salad in. Pour over the just boiled stock and then stir through 2 tbsps of the dressing. Cover with clingfilm and set aside for 5 mins.
Apply to Face as the tears run down your cheeks.
The dressing is quite hot so by serving it at the table it can allow for all palates. It is best served at room temperature.
I do sometimes roast the veg beforehand and warm through when needed.
Seriously fill your face. Enjoy!
