Ingredients You'll Need

1 package (10-12 oz.) couscous
2-3 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth, depending on amount of couscous
1 medium zucchini, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and diced

1 Tbsp. canola oil
3 Tbsp. basil-flavored olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
8 fresh asparagus spears, peeled and blanched, for garnish

Turn cooled couscous into large bowl. Mix in sautéed vegetables. Toss with herbed olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Place mixed salad on a serving plate. Garnish with sliced tomatoes and asparagus spears.
