Zucchini and Pepper Salad

Tasted this recipe la st week at a social for our weight loss group . . . we have a Nutritionist and a guest speaker.People are encouraged to bring their favorite healthy dish.

I have to tell you, I HATE zucchini. It has no flavor and the mouth feel reminds me of a gooey. mushy, blah nothingness. Unless it is in zucchini bread or zucchini pie :)

But this . . man, oh, man . . it was WONDERFUL!



Ingredients:
2 Medium Zucchini
2 Peppers
1 Medium Onion
10 - 20 Cherry Tomatoes, or equivalent
Ground Cumin
Chiavetta's Italian Dressing (Kraft Zesty Italian works great)
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Dice onions and peppers to comparable sizes. 
2. Saute peppers and onions 'til tender.
3. Add 1/8 tsp Ground Cumin and Italian Dressing, stir and heat through, then remove from heat.
4. Add cut tomatoes to pepper/onion mixture

5. Cut zucchini into "McDonald French Fry" sized strips. CUt the strips in half. (Rind can be left on or taken off.)
6. SAute 'til tender,
7. Add 1/8 tsp Ground Cumin and Italian Dressing, stir and heat through, then remove from heat.

8. Combine pepper/onion/tomato mixture with zucchini, and heat through.

Serve immediately, garnished with Parmesan Cheese, or serve cold with the cheese.

Now tell me, doesn't Sunday night's supper look delicious?
