To make salad:
Measure water into a 2-cup glass measure. Microwave on high 3

excess juice - reserve segments for garnish. After segmenting
oranges, squeeze juice from core and membranes into bowl. Add mango,
basil, chives, cumin, pine nuts and couscous - toss to combine. Pack
mixture into 6 individual : 1/2 cup molds.
Arrange arugula wagon-wheel fashion on six large plates. Unmold
couscous in center of plate. Garnish with reserved orange sections
To make Vinaigrette:
Peel orange, grapefruit, lime and lemon. Cut each into segments over
a large stainless steel bowl to catch excess juices. Carefully dice
segments, cutting - not crushing them.
Add oil, vinegar, soy sauce and tabasco to fruit juices in bowl -
whisk to blend. Add peppercorns, ginger, cilantro, diced fruit and
stir to combine. Makes about 1 1/4 cups. Drizzle over couscous.
