Ingredients

3/4 cup (180 mL) sodium-reduced vegetable broth
3/4 cup (180 mL) medium couscous
1/3 cup (80 mL) pure unsweetened apple juice
1 tbsp (15 mL) cider vinegar
2 tbsp (30 mL) sunflower oil
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 or 2 green onions, chopped
1 cup (250 mL) carrots, grated
1 cup (250 mL) zucchini, grated
1/2 yellow pepper, diced
1 apple, diced
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Canadian Gouda, diced
1 cup (250 mL) cooked chicken
