With a full-time job and my own catering business, I appreciate delicious food that can be prepared ahead, like this colorful zippy salad. My family and friends are glad to sample the new dishes I prepare, especially when they turn out as good as this one.

This is a colorful and tasty alternative to coleslaw. Like most gardeners, we usually have an abundance of squash and zucchini in summer, so this dish is inexpensive to prepare and a great way to put this fresh produce to use.

This light, multicolored salad is an original. When I serve it at potlucks, I', always asked for the recipe. It's also a standby for the "snowbirds" who gather with us in Arizona each winter. —Kathy Crow, Cordova, Alaska
I'm always looking for new recipes for this versatile vegetable. Zucchini is so abundant this time of year, and it tastes so good! It's easy to prepare, stores well and is colorful. This salad goes well with pork and chicken.
When my husband and I planned our first garden, we overdid the tomato and zucchini plants. By the end of harvest, I was at my wit's end wondering what else I could do with all those vegetables (sound familiar?). That's when my sister and I came up with this great-tasting salad. Today, even though we have our garden under control, we still make this popular dish.
