  • To prepare the dressing: Add vinegar, mayonnaise, garlic, salt, and pepper to tomatoes in blender. Cover and blend until smooth.

  • In a large bowl, combine zucchini, beans, onions, basil, and oregano.

  • Chop the remaining tomatoes and add to zucchini mixture. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Sprinkle servings with nuts. Serve immediately.

Tips

Tip: To make long thin shreds, trim off ends of zucchini. Run a julienne peeler along the full length of the zucchini. Or use a vegetable spiral slicer to make zucchini "noodles." You can also cut the zucchini into long thin strips by hand, or use a vegetable peeler to make long, thin zucchini ribbons.
