And finally… Giant Cous Cous, Chickpea and Feta Salad with Raspberry Balsamic Dressing by me! Writing this blog post really inspired me to try out my first mason salad jar recipe. I combined some of my favourite salad ingredients to make a delicious lunch to take to work. I adore giant cous cous and feta is one of my favourite cheeses to have in salad. I found raspberry balsamic in Holland & Barrett and have loved it ever since, it still has that vinegar tang, but with a fruity hint. Give it a try!
