Couscous Salad

Wish you all a very happy New Year!!!
It was decided by the GOURMET SEVEN that we cook picnic foods from BBC FOODS and I decided to start 2013 blogging with a very healthy salad recipe from BBC FOOD.Earlier cous cous was very available in Chennai, but now most of the ingredients, rare fruits and vegetables are available. I got this pack of couscous from Gormei market and preparing this was so easy.
Cous cous  1 cup
Parsley chopped 1/2 cup
Coriander chopped  1/4 cup
Onion(diced finely)   1
Cucumber(cut finely)   1

Toasted sesame seeds  2tbsp
Olive oil                       2 tbsp

Cover the couscous with twice its volume of hotwater and let it rest for 10 minutes to soak
