This recipe is counts for four or five 1-person portions and is perfect as a side salad for a big dinner party.
Boil the couscous in a large pan with enough water for about 12 minutes (check your own brand for specific instructions). Add quite an amount of salt as you will drain most of it and you don't have to season the salad anymore afterwards.
Finely hop the cucumber, the tomatoes and the parsley.
