2 oranges, juice only
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

½ cup shelled pistachios, chopped

1 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
4 scallions, chopped
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint

For couscous: Cook couscous according to directions on box, using chicken broth in place of water. Once cooked, add orange juice and salt; mix well. Fold in cucumber, red bell pepper and pistachios.

For dressing: Mix all ingredients for dressing in bowl and whisk.

For salmon: Preheat grill or broiler. Brush salmon with olive oil. Place on hot grates or in a grill pan and grill for 5-8 minutes per side, until salmon looks opaque and has a slightly rosy center when pierced with the tip of  a knife.
