1. Place the couscous and 1/2 tsp. salt in a large heatproof mixing bowl, then pour in 1 cup boiling water. Cover tightly and let sit for 5 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, make the dressing. With the motor running, drop the garlic and lemon juice into a food processor, then drizzle in the olive oil. Stop the machine and add the parsley, mint, and scallions, pulsing several times to chop roughly. Stir the dressing into the couscous and season with salt and pepper. (If you plan on chilling the roll, salt it more heavily than if you will be eating it at room temperature.) 3. To assemble: Heat the tortillas, one at a time, directly on a gas flame, on a grill, or in a hot skillet, turning frequently, until hot and pliable, 5 to 15 seconds each. Or heat, stacked, in the microwave [see note]. Lay down 3 to 4 lettuce leaves, topped with 1/4 of the couscous salad, and 1/4 of the tomatoes and cucumbers in a thick horizontal strip across the bottom third of the tortilla, making sure the ingredients dont quite touch the edges. Fold in the two sides and roll the wrap away from you. Complete the wraps with the remaining ingredients. Or, if you prefer, prepare all at once, assembly-line style. Cut in half on the bias. Makes 4 wraps. Substitutions: This makes a great lettuce wrap. Just skip the tortilla and use large green leaf lettuce leaves instead. Trim the Fat: This is a low-fat wrap if the oil is cut by 1 teaspoon. Make Ahead/Take Away: Sealed in wax paper, foil, or plastic wrap and refrigerated, the wraps keep well for up tp 6 hours. Serve at room temperature or cold. Microwave Note: "The microwave is a quick, convenient way to steam-soften tortillas, because they can be done all at once. Stack the number of tortillas called for in the recipe between 2 damp paper towels and microwave until hot and pliable, about 10 seconds per tortilla. Timing will depend on the power of your microwave, so keep a sharp lookout the first time, and then you will have the timing down. (Note that some tortilla brands are naturally wetter than others, so they do not require damp paper towels.) Keep the tortillas covered as you are assembling the wraps."
