Spiralized zucchini, also called zoodles have changed my life. One of my kids who doesn't normally like zucchini, snacks on sprialized zucchini plain! Spiralized zucchini lends itself to many recipes, and can often be used in place of regular noodles. This recipe is easy, pretty, tasty, and of course nutritious.

2 large zucchinis, spiralized
1 pint, grape tomatoes
1 ripe medium avocado, cut in halves
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 clove crushed garlic
2 tsps minced fresh basil - or use 2 frozen herb cubes

salt and peper to taste
