From the recipe’s author: “I was a resident of Rockingham County, New Hampshire, for 43 years and moved to Walland, Tennessee, in 1990. With a longer growing season, I needed to find a way to use all my summer squash, which is quite prolific. This recipe is fantastic!”

10 cups thinly sliced summer squash (or zucchini)
2 cups thinly sliced onion rings
2 cups thinly sliced green pepper
1 large jar diced pimento
