1. Prepare orzo as label directs but add bouillon to water. Drain orzo; place in large bowl.
2. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, in hot salad oil, cook zucchini, onion, green pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender-crisp.
3. Remove vegetable mixture to bowl with orzo. Add olives, pimentos, vinegar, mustard, sugar, and 1 3/4 teaspoons salt, tossing to mix well. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour to blend flavors.
