Israeli Couscous & Pomegranate Salad

Serves 4
250g Israeli Couscous
1 Pomegranate
1 Organic Orange (zest & juice)
1 oz. Tarragon vinegar
3 oz. Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Handful of Dried Currants
Few sprigs of parsley & mint
2 oz. Feta Cheese

A similar dish to this was on the menu for my summer wedding. The guests loved it. It is colorful, exciting, and flavorful.
Boil Water with Couscous for 8 mins. Drain in cold water. Cut pomegranate in Half and remove seeds, to do this I recommend whacking it with a spoon, or removing them with your hands. Add Pomegranate seeds, Couscous, Currants into a bowl. Chop the herbs and toss those in too. In a small jar make the dressing. Add the zest and juice of the orange, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Put the cheese in the jar too. Put the lid on and shake the dressing up. Poor over salad, toss and serve.
