Raw Zucchini Salad

With the summer coming, I am moving more away from hot meals (my kitchen becomes really, really hot when the oven is on) and onto lighter, fresher foods. I love raw salads in the summer! There's something refreshing about it. This is a very easy and fast dish (takes less than five minutes to prepare). It does taste better chilled so make it a little before you plan on eating it.

3 zucchini
4 tablespoons olive oil
6-8 leaves fresh basil, torn
Salt to taste
Juice from half a lemon

Slice the zucchini thinly. Toss with the salt, olive oil, basil, and lemon juice. Chill for one hour before serving.
