Moroccan Apricot Couscous Salad – Quick and Easy

I really love Moroccan-style flavours – cumin, ginger, coriander, cinnamon! And the best is – there is a fabulous ‘short-cut’ available – Woolies’ Moroccan Rub! I use it so often, that I always buy 2 containers at a time! Very versatile and convenient 🙂 And it works great with lamb, chicken and veggies.

Here’s a quick and healthy salad to make the most of those flavours:


Serves 1

80g cooked couscous

75g chickpeas (tinned/cooked)

A big handful of fresh rocket

30g soft dried apricots, chopped

10g toasted almond slivers



100g plain fat free yogurt

1/2 tsp Woolworths Moroccan Rub (if you don’t have this – you can make up your own Moroccan blend -this recipe is great


Mix couscous and chickpeas and place on bed of rocket, lightly stir through yogurt dressing. Season to taste. Sprinkle chopped apricot bits and toasted almonds over it.
