  1. Place the chopped zucchini, onions peppers and salt in a large bowl and cover with cold water and let it sit for 2 hours.  Drain liquid, rinse throughly and drain again.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil.  Add the zucchini mixture, reduce heat to simmer and cook 10 minutes.
  3. Pack hot relish mixture into 1/2 pint jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space.  Remove air bubbles.  Adjust 2 piece caps, and process in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes.
