Stir in couscous and raisins; return mixture to a boil and cook until liquid is absorbed.
Transfer to large bowl and let cool.
Add tomato, zucchini, carrot, onion, lemon juice, salt, and remaining tablespoon oil to cooled couscous mixture and toss to combine; cover and refrigerate for several hours to allow flavors to blend (may be refrigerated overnight).
Just before serving, toss salad again; serve on bed of lettuce leaves and garnish with parsley sprigs.
