Fresh Vegetable Salad

I really like Fiesta Pasta Salad, but D wanted something slightly different.  So I went and checked my Pinteret "To Try" page and found this.  It was pretty good, albeit slightly spicy, due to D's tweaking.  He didn't like the celery in it and thinks next time we should add zucchini.  I can go with that.  Also, he forgot tomatoes in the original meal, but added them later.  They were very welcome to the salad.

We had with Beer Can Chicken.
