This salad would work well as a side dish or as a starter.
Place the couscous in a salad bowl with the olive oil, crushed tomatoes and lemon juice and a good pinch of salt. Use your hand to rub the couscous grains with these ingredients. Let sit for 3 minutes. Now add the boiling water and couscous and cover the bowl with foil. Let sit for 6-8 minutes until tender. Now, with a fork fluff the couscous until all grains are separated. Add the onions, mint, cherry tomatoes and cumin. Season again if necessary.
TIP: It is really important to cover the couscous when you have added the water. This will ensure it steam evenly and all the grains are cooked through well.
