Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in couscous, cover and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Whisk in oil in a thin steady stream until dressing thickens. Add couscous, nectarines, watercress, pistachios and shallots to bowl and toss to combine. Serve warm or chilled.
