Mediterranean Artichoke Couscous Salad

It's back to work and back to lunchboxes! This is a quick salad using store cupboard ingredients. Really simple but really flavourful.

Mediterranean Artichoke Couscous Salad
(Serves 1)

50g Israeli couscous
1 large tsp pesto
4 marinated artichoke hearts, halved
8 olives, halved
1/4 red onion, chopped
4 sun dried tomatoes, sliced
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tbsp toasted pinenuts
squeeze lemon juice
salt and pepper

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the couscous according to packet instructions. Drain, run under the cold tap and drain again well.

Put the artichoke, olives, onion and tomatoes into a bowl and add the couscous. Add the pesto and toss to combine. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice and pack into a lunchbox and serve.
