Giant Couscous Salad

One of Annabel’s favourite salads. The mix of the soft couscous, crunchy vegetables and pecans with the soy, mirin and red onion dressing is amazing. Giant couscous is not in fact couscous at all. It is made from small balls of pasta and it has a lovely bouncy texture. All ages are going to love this one!
