Bring stock and orange juice to a boil. Add couscous and stir. Then turn off heat and cover pot tightly. Don't peek. Let stand.

Make dressing by combining oive oil and lime juice. Whisk and set aside.

Back to the couscous. Remove lid and fluff grains with a fork. Add chopped vegetable and drizzle with dressing. Add oregano and season with sea salt and ground black pepper.
