Zucchini "Pasta"

A great raw dish, perfect for summer. This is from Whole Living magazine.

16 oz cherry tomatoes, sliced
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped raw walnuts
4 TB torn fresh basil
4 TB extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
sea salt, to taste
2 zucchinis, thinly sliced lengthwise, slices cut into 1/4-inch-long strips (like fettuccine)

In a bowl, combine tomatoes, garlic, walnuts, basil, and oil.  Season with salt.  Let stand for 20 minutes.  Toss with zucchini and garnish with basil.  Serves 4.
