"Tomato Zucchini Salad is a crisp, colorful salad tossed with a delicious Dijon-tarragon vinaigrette," notes Suzanne Kesel of Cohocton, New York. "Try it in summer, too, when you can use fresh items from your garden."
- 2 cups water
- 4 small zucchini, thinly sliced
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 small tomatoes, cut into wedges

- 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

"I really liked the flavors in this recipe. I may put less red onion in next time because it was just a little too much bite for me. Great recipe!!!!"
