Couscous with Grilled Vegetables

I wanted to use up some grilled vegetables, and thought adding them to couscous would be a good idea. It just turned out dry and boring. I tried adding balsamic vinaigrette, but it didn't help much. Any ideas??? Thanks!

Couscous with Grilled Vegetables

1 medium vidalia onion
1 red bell pepper
1 zucchini
2 summer squash
1 box plain couscous
olive oil
salt, pepper
balsamic vinaigrette

Preheat grill to medium high. Wash all vegetables, and cut into large pieces so they don't fall through the grill. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Grill for about 4 minutes per side. Meanwhile cook couscous according to package directions (boil water, remove from heat, add couscous, cover and let set for 5 minutes). When couscous is done, combine with diced grilled vegetables. I then added some more olive oil, and the balsamic vinaigrette to liven it up, but it was still blah.
