  1. Slice the zucchini into ½-inch rounds, then cut those rounds into ½-inch sticks.

  2. Husk corn and slice the kernels off.

  3. Heat 2 Tbs. oil in a pan over medium heat and fry the zucchini and corn, stirring, until lightly browned.

  4. Combine with the remaining ingredients in a salad bowl, cover, and let sit at room temperature for at least 45 min. The couscous will absorb the moisture around it and swell noticeably. Add remaining 3 Tbs. olive oil, stir well, and adjust the seasoning before serving.
