Zucchini Pico de Gallo Salsa or Salad

As delicious to taste as it is to behold! And just one more recipe in your zucchini cookbook arsenal. Easy to swap out ingredients on hand for the array in this recipe. Cucumber, cauliflower, green onions, etc. You select your level of desired heat by type and amounts of peppers - jalapeno, verses poblano vs. bell peppers. For the salsa dip I small-diced (1/4") all veggies. Next time I'll make it into a salad by regular 1/2" dicing. The lime dressing is perfect by itself even as a salad dressing, there's no need for any olive oil.
