This Pomegranate Feta Salad has the perfect combination of tangy feta cheese and the sweet pomegranate seeds. So colourful and nutritious, as made with wholegrain cous cous and easy to whip up in less than 15 minutes. Give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 280 g wholegrain couscous (£0.99)
  • 1 red onion (£0.65/3)= (£0.22)
  • 1 bag mixed leaf salad (£0.59)
  • 200 g feta (£0.75)
  • 1 pomegranate (£0.99)
  • 1 lime (£1.05/5)=(£0.21)
  • Bunch of fresh mint (£0.48)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1 veggie stock cube
  • Salt

Method

  • Add the amount of boiling water stated on the cous cous packet and cover with a lid. I used vegetable stock to add some flavour.
  • Finely dice the red onion and remove the pomegranate seeds from the fruit. There are loads of fancy methods of doing this but I just slice it in half widthways, place it facing down on a chopping board and hit it with something hard. It’s great if you’re in a mad mood.
  • Finely slice the fresh mint, removing the leaves from the stalks before cutting.
  • One the couscous has absorbed the water. Place in a different bowl and pop in the freezer for 5 minutes to cool.
  • Stir in the onion and mint the juice of one lime. Season with salt.
  • Divide up into the meal prep containers, adding a handful of salad into each portion. Sprinkle the feta and pomegranate on top and you’re good to go.
