seriously simple zucchini salad

IMG_8323IMG_8327

Too simple and too good, this was my glamorous idea of dinner last night, but it was dinner for one and exactly what I needed.

2 zucchinis
1 ripe tomato
small bunch of basil
1 tsp sea salt
20g of feta or bocconcini to serve (or however much you like really, just watch the salt!)
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs of red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar

Using a peeler, peel the zucchini in thin strips lengthways into a bowl. Sprinkle with salt, toss through evenly and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
Finally chop the tomato.
Create the dressing by whisking together olive oil and your choice of vinegar.
Squeeze out and/or strain the excess water from the resting zucchini  and attempt to pat try as much as possible.Place the zucchini strips evenly on plate, top with the tomato and cheese. Sprinkle over finely sliced basil, drizzle over the dressing and season with pepper.

OH-EM-GOSH!
