Mediterranean Cous-Cous Salad for a Special Party



It was my friend's (Sneza) birthday!
Best compliments to her family for organising such a perfect party - I had so much fun! Theme was '1001 night'. Food was great - I took only a few pictures, and so was entertainment...boys did excellent job!
I was asked to make Mediterranean Cous-cous salad...



Ingredients (for a large salad):
2 cous-cous packs (500 g each)
2 medium eggplants, cut into matches
(salt, pepper, flour and oil for frying eggplants and zucchinis)
2 zucchinis, matches
2-3 spring onions, sliced
1-2 red capsicums, from jar, cut into small pieces
1 jar (250-300 g) sun dried tomatoes, drained
2 small jars artichokes, drained
1 jar pitted Kalamata olives (350g+), drained
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil
Favorite herbs (parsley, oregano, mint, thyme, basil...)roughly chopped
Method:
Prepare cous-cous according to instructions on packet. Keep it aside.
Season eggplant and zucchinis with salt and pepper, dust with flour. Fry until golden; take out on absorbent paper.
Mix all other ingredients with cous-cous add fried vegetable. Season to your taste. Dress with herbs and olive oil.

...napravljena za moju prijateljicu Snezu i njen rodjendan. Sve pohvale njenoj kcerki i ostalim clanovima porodice za organizovanje tako perfektne i zanimljive zabave - meni je bilo SUPER! Tema je bila '1001 noc'; hrana (uspjela sam slikati samo dio toga) i zabaljaci fenomenalni - bravo decki!

Potrebno (za veliku ciniju salate):
2 pakovanja kus-kusa (500 gr svako)

250-300 gr polususenog paradajza
2 manje tegle articoka
1 (350 gr) tegla Kalamata (Grckih) maslina
so i biber prema ukusu
maslinovo ulje
Zacinsko bilje (persun, bosiljak, majcina dusica, origano, nana...)
Nacin:
Pripremite kus-kus prema instrukijama na kutiji.
Posolite i pobiberite patlidzan i tikvice, protresite u kesi sa brasnom, pa przite u ulju dok ne porumene. Izvadite i stavite na upijajuci papir.
Pomijesajte sve ostale sastojke sa kus-kusom i przenim povrcem. Zacinite prema ukusu, zatim pospite zacinskim biljem i maslinovim uljem.
