I've been meaning to participate in No Croutons Required, run by Jacqueline of Tinned Tomatoes and Lisa of Lisa's Vegetarian Kitchen for ages and ages now, but because the deadline is before the very end of the month I always end up missing it. I'm also not the world's biggest fan of soup really, so winter months are difficult to think of a salad. I'll have to be more creative in the future!
This month, Jacqueline is hosting and has asked for soups or salads incorporating grilled or roasted vegetables. I love roast veggies so this one really appealed to me. I turned my veggies into a more substantial meal by adding giant couscous and some lovely mozzarella cheese. If you're somewhere chilly, this salad warms up beautifully and the mozzarella goes all gooey and melting... yum!
I roasted peppers, baby tomatoes, red onions and aubergines (almost had a red theme going there!) in the oven until tender then mixed them with some cooked giant couscous (another thing I'm quite keen on!). Season with a little salt, pepper and olive oil to taste, and there you have your simple roast veggie couscous salad.
