3. With a fork, loosen up the couscous and blend in with chickpea blend.
4. Now combine lemon juice, white onions and tomatoes and toss together.
5. Finally, drizzle honey on creation and mix well. Refrigerate salad for about half an hour to allow the flavors to set. Sprinkle with herbs of your choice prior to serving.
