1 cup julienne-cut carrots (preferably matchstick size)
1 cup thinly sliced zucchini
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup thinly sliced cabbage
1/2 cup thinly sliced bell pepper
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 pound ham, beef, salami or turkey, julienne-cut
1/4 pound Swiss cheese, julienne-cut
Good-quality vinaigrette or Italian dressing

In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight. Note: This is a terrific picnic salad, and is equally yummy when piled into pocket bread with yogurt or mayonnaise, lettuce and sprouts.

Makes 8 servings.
