Couscous Salad:

In a saucepan combine the broth, water, 1/4 cup of the lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons of the oil, bring the mixture to a boil, and stir in the couscous. Cover the pan, remove it from the heat, and let the couscous stand for 5 minutes. Fluff the couscous with a fork and let it cool in the pan.

In a very large bowl stir together the cucumber pieces, tomato dice, scallion, the remaining 1/3 cup oil, the remaining 1/4 cup lemon juice, and salt, to taste, and let the mixture stand for 15 minutes. Add the couscous, stir the salad well, and chill it, covered, for 1 hour. The salad may be made 2 days in advance and kept covered and chilled. Serve the salad garnished with cucumber and tomato slices.
