Lentil and Couscous Camping Salad

What a quick and delicious camping salad! Of course it's not just for camping but also perfect for any BBQ or picnic. It is however, lovely for camping as the ingredients travel well, the salad itself keeps for ages in a container, and it's pretty much a no cook dish. Such a balanced side for us vegetarians too!
