Honestly, this recipe is so delish, it doesn’t really matter at what temperature you eat it!
We enjoy it as a main dish, or over some baby spinach with an extra drizzle of balsamic dressing! Refrigerate ; enjoy over the next few days. I hope you enjoy this salad at your next gathering! I promise it won’t disappoint!

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, and garlic, slowly add the olive oil and whisk until combined. Season with salt and freshly group pepper. The consistency will be on the thicker side. Poor the marinade over the vegetables and let sit at room temperature for 15 min. or so. Preheat the grill or cook in wok. Remove the veggies from the marinade and grill until they are cooked through. Stand next to the grill and watch the vegetables carefully, turning them as needed. I personally like my veggies with a little bite or aldente. Once cooked, cut the zucchini, peppers, asparagus into ½ inch pieces. Set them aside as you start couscous.
Heat 2 TBSP olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the couscous and stir. Toast it until it is golden brown.
Once the couscous is toasted, cover it with the 2 cups of hot vegetable stock. The couscous absorbs water so cover it a lot; you are going to drain the liquid after it is cooked (think of it like pasta).
Cook the couscous until it is aldente, about 10 minutes, but always taste them to make sure they are your desired consistency. Drain well, place couscous in a large serving bowl, and add all your chopped veggies, herbs, optional pine nuts & spinach; toss .
Serve immediately, at room temperature or store in the refrigerator and eat chilled.
