Corn and Israeli Couscous Salad can be made up to 4 hours ahead of time and travels well, so it’s ideal for a barbecue or pot luck dinner.

If it’s not sweetcorn season use 3 cups defrosted frozen sweetcorn kernels instead of the corn cobs.

Prep time 10 mins
Serves 8-10 as a side

From The Free Range Cook: Simple Pleasures by Annabel Langbein


  • 2 cups Israeli couscous
  • 4 cobs sweetcorn
  • 1 carrot, coarsely grated
  • ½ cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves
  • 3 tbsp neutral oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cumin


Cook the Israeli couscous according to the instructions on the packet. Drain and allow to cool.

Boil sweetcorn in salted water for 3 minutes until tender. Slice the kernels off the sweetcorn cobs and place in a serving bowl with the Israeli couscous, carrot, almonds and coriander.

In a small jar shake together the oil, lemon juice and cumin with salt and ground black pepper to taste. Pour over the salad, toss and serve.
