1 large bunch of mint
1 large bunch of parsley

Prepare couscous as directed on the package. Allow to cool in the kitchen and reserve in a large bowl in the refrigerator.
Wash the peppers, remove the stems, open them in half, remove the seeds, cut the internal ribs and cut them into small cubes.
Peel the cucumber, cut in half lengthwise, empty it of its seeds with a spoon and cut it into small cubes also.
Peel the onions and chop them coarsely. Wash, dry, thin and finely chop the herbs. Squeeze the lemon juice.
Remove the couscous from the refrigerator and add the diced pepper and cucumber, chopped onions and chopped herbs and mix.
