Garlicky Zucchini Ribbon Salad

Yield 2-4 servings
  • 1 cup diced fresh tomato (from 1 average-sized tomato)
  • 10 large basil leaves, thinly sliced (plus extra small leaves, to garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 pound zucchini, peeled into ribbons
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh black pepper

1. In a large mixing bowl, toss together the tomato, basil, vinegar, olive oil and garlic. Add a big pinch of salt and some fresh black pepper. Let that sit as you peel the zucchini into ribbons.
