Add the cous cous to a bowl. Pour ⅓ cup of boiling water (per portion) on top of the cous cous. Cover and allow to fluff for 5 minutes.
Toast the pine nuts in a frying pan on high heat until they turn golden brown. Stir frequently to avoid burning!
Remove the olive pits (if they aren't already pitted) and cut them into slices.
To make the dressing, mix together the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil (per portion), salt & pepper in a small bowl.
Fluff the cous cous using a fork and add the olives, toasted pine nuts and cilantro. Toss together with the dressing and enjoy! Optional: add some lemon zest for some extra lemony flavor
