Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and saute the onions and garlic until softened and fragrant. Set aside.
Scatter the couscous in a large shallow dish and add the hot stock. Allow to stand for 5 minutes then start using a fork to fluff the couscous up. Make sure all the liquid has absorbed.
Decant the fluffed up couscous into a mixing or salad bowl. Add the tomatoes including the juices, onion mixture, fresh herbs, chevin and white wine vinegar and mix gently until evenly combined. Season with freshly ground salt and pepper to taste.
