Tomato Couscous Salad

I made this couscous salad a couple of days ago. It was an easy one to throw together and my wee boy seems to enjoy it. He has enjoyed it warm, but it would be good cold too. I am thinking I would like it for lunch at work. It would make a nice change from sandwiches and leafy salads.

If you are serving this to a weaned baby or young toddler, I would suggest mashing or whizzing up the kidney beans and chickpeas.
