  2. Heat a griddle pan or grill. Drizzle the courgette slices with oil, then season. Cook for 2 mins, then turn over and cook 1-2 mins more until softened and golden brown. Tip into a large bowl along with the cooked couscous or bulgur wheat, then mix through the remaining ingredients. Serve at room temperature.

i made it to day for my children. I doubled the ingredients because i have a big family. We all loved it, so tasty and easy to make. The leftovers will be in their lunch boxes tomorrow.

Great change for cous-cous. I actually quarter my courgettes and add some red pepper, stir fried first.

I love lemon but never put it on a salad like this before. The parsley works really well with the zesty lemon. I added some cherry tomatoes which added colour and flavour!

did this at scool 2day 4 part of my GCSE course............... it reallly nice. but maybe just a little too much couscous? It seemed to take over the other ingredients a bit. But it still looks and smells pretty awesum!!

quick, easy and really really tasty - I tend to add a little more lemon juice and feta, and make a huge bowl full, taking it to work for my lunch. Delicious!

A bit ordinary to be honest - not particularly tangy!
