Couscous Salad with Eggs and Vegetables

  Chicken broth 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Carrot 1 , peeled and cut into 1/2 inch dice
  Couscous 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Olive oil 4 Tablespoon
  Fresh lemon juice 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon

  Hard cooked eggs 3 , cut lengthwise into 8 wedges
  Seedless grapes 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs), halved
  Sweet red pepper 1⁄2 , cored, seeded and thinly sliced lengthwise

1. Bring the chicken broth to boiling in a small saucepan over high heat. Add the carrot; lower the heat and simmer for 6 minutes or until the carrot is tender-crisp.
2. Add the couscous; stir. Cover the saucepan; remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, cumin, salt and pepper in a medium-size bowl. Turn the couscous into the bowl with the dressing. Fluff the couscous with a fork to separate the grains.
4. Bring 2 cups of water to boiling in a saucepan. Add the zucchini; boil for 8 minutes or until the zucchini is crisp-tender. Drain the zucchini and cool. Trim ends; half the zucchini lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
