Pimentos are small, sweet, red cherry peppers. Their succulent and aromatic qualities are the perfect counterbalance to the salty edge of the feta. This is a beautifully balanced dish that will remind you of long, hot days.
Measure 100g of giant cous cous into a pan of boiling chicken stock (or water if preferred)
Simmer for 6-8 mins until tender, drain and leave to cool
Meanwhile mix 4 good handfuls of watercress into a bowl with 1 small finely sliced red onion, approx. 175g of cubed feta cheese and a jar of drained pimento
Add in the cooled cous cous
Toss the salad together well with a couple of good slugs of A Little Bit Red Onion and Parsley Dressing
Finally scatter a handful of toasted pine nuts, chopped parsley and basil on the top for a fabulous finishing touch
