1 tsp raw sugar

250g Button Mushrooms, halved
1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup basil leaves
1 tbsp drained capers in brine
½ cup Sicilian olives, bruised with a knife, pits removed (optional)
Salt and pepper, to season

Method

1

Preheat the oven to 220°C. Whisk 2 tbsp of the oil with the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl, whisking until the sugar dissolves.

Using a spiraliser or julienne peeler, cut the zucchini into noodles and add to the bowl, tossing well to combine. Set aside to soften.
