Tossed in a flavorful vinaigrette and topped with fresh cherry tomatoes and basil from our garden, this raw “pasta” dish really does trick the senses and is a fabulous no-cook dish. If you don’t have a vegetable spiraler, you could use a julienne peeler or even substitute regular cooked angel hair or linguine and just add very, very thin slices of raw zucchini with the tomatoes.
