Couscous with Grilled Vegetables

One of my favorite summer sides.

1/4 c. chopped fresh oregano
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
1/4 c. lemon juice
3 tbs. olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tbs. water
2 red peppers ( or 1 green, 1 red)
1 large red onion, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 small zucchini, halved lengthwise
1 small yellow summer squash, halved lengthwise
1 10 0z. pkg couscous
1/2 c. pistachio nuts

For dressing, in small bowl combine oregano, parsley, lemon juice, oil, garlic and water. Brush the vegetables lightly with olive oil. Grill on the rack of an uncovered grill over med.
heat 12-15 min. or until crisp tender, turning occasionally.
Meanwhile, prepare the couscous following pkg. directions. Transfer grilled veggies
to cutting board, cool, and dice. Peel the peppers before dicing (or use store bought
roasted peppers). Add chopped veggies to couscous, stir in dressing and toss.
Garnish w/chopped pistachios. Serves 6-8.
