1/2 tsp pepper
Add diced pimientos (2 Tbsp full) or add complete green olives stuffed with pimientos

In large salad bowl combine zucchini, green and red peppers, celery, onion, and pimientos (or olives with pimientos). (Having just thepimientos looks very pretty, however, the olives are nice, too.)

Serve, preferably with slotted spoon, or drain some of the dressing out so that guests willnot be having a flooded salad.
