    | 1. Mix the first 3 ingredients together in a large bowl, Place to the side. | 2. Slice zucchini into strips lengthwise and red onion into large rings (both about a centimeter thick). | 3. Heat a grill pan to very hot and grill the red pepper (whole), onion rings and zucchini strips. Remove the onion and zucchini when they begin to blacken slightly on the outsides - do no over cook! Continue charring the red pepper until the outside skin is completely black. (This can also be done outside on your BBQ). | 4. While still slightly hot, chop the zucchini and the onion into 1/2 inch pieces and add to the vinegar. | 5. Place the red pepper in a paper bag and allow the steam loosen the skin. After a couple of minutes, remove the peel and the seeds. Chop the pepper into 1/2 inch pieces and add to the vinegar. | 6. Toss the grilled veggies in the vinegar dressing and cover the bowl with plastic plastic wrap (to trap the remaining steam inside). | 7. Cook the couscous according to the manufacturer using the chicken stock. I have provided the measurements for a "quick cooking" couscous, you may need to add more/less liquid according to the brand you use. | 8. After cooking, fluff the couscous with a fork and add to the bowl with the grilled veggies and vinegar dressing. | 9. Add the cheese, tomatoes and olives. Toss to incorporate all ingredients well. | 10. Chill. This recipe can be made a day in advance. Lightly toss the salad before serving to give it a light texture. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
