Tabbouleh-style strawberry and couscous salad

Strawberries are here! To celebrate this, @5adaynz and I decided to bring you this delicious spring Tabbouleh-style strawberry and couscous salad with crunchy cucumber, aromatic mint and Italian parsley, and roasted almonds to add a nutty twist. This beautiful combination of fresh flavours is served on a homemade buckwheat flatbread. It’s not only very tasty, but also very nourishing. Strawberries are rich in vitamins, fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants.
