I actually made this as a stuffing for a turkey however had a lot left over and it was great as a salad -my grandchildren loved it as it has a slightly sweet taste.

Easy to make, and quick, this is a no fuss recipe using corn cous cous instead of rice.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
200 g corn cous cous
4 - 6 rashers shortcut bacon
250 ml good quality chicken or vegetable stock -I used home made chicken stock
4 spring onions
150 g craisins
60 g walnuts, chopped
Small bunch parsley
Grated zest of an orange

Method
Place the cous cous and craisins in a pan, pour in the hot stock, and bring to the boil. Cover and turn off the heat. Leave to stand for 5 minutes.

You can stuff a chicken, or turkey with this and serve the remainder as a salad, or you can use it as a healthy accompaniment to a meal.
