1 700g Schneiders Original Applewood Smoked Ham, sliced 1/2” thick

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1½ cups Israeli couscous, cook per package instruction, cooled

½ cup black olives, pitted, roughly chopped

½ cup Italian parsley, roughly chopped

¼ cup basil, roughly chopped

¼ cup dill, roughly chopped


¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup red wine vinegar

Juice of one lemon

1 clove garlic, finely grated

½ teaspoon kosher salt



In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients for the vinaigrette. Adjust the seasoning if necessary. Reserve.

In a large bowl combine couscous, cucumber, tomato, olives, feta and herbs. Mix thoroughly then add the vinaigrette. Mix another couple of times so everything is dressed. Check the seasoning again, it might need a splash more vinegar and a little more salt.

Cover and refrigerate until needed.

Preheat grill to 400 F.

Brush the slices of ham with vegetable oil and grill for 1 to 2 minutes a side until warm and lightly caramelized.

On a large platter, lay out the grilled ham and top with the couscous salad.
