Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Peel, then cut half the onion into 1/4-inch pieces (use whole onion for 4 ppl).
