    I’m on a mission to find great new (to me) recipes using zucchini, and this perky salad was the first to be tried. A healthy colorful side salad, full of summer garden veggies with a refreshing light dressing. It meets my criteria for a “Keeper.” Score One!


    • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
    • 1 medium sweet yellow pepper, chopped
    • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
    • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
    • 1 small zucchini, chopped
    • 2 green onions, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 large ripe avocado, peeled and chopped
    • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice


    1. In large bowl combine red and yellow bell peppers, tomato, cucumber, zucchini, green onions and parsley.
    2. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Add dressing to vegetables and toss to coat. Correct seasonings if needed.
    3. Drizzle lemon juice evenly over avocado and garnish top of salad to serve. (Don’t stir them in or they will become mushy.)
    4. Serves 6 to 8.
