This is one of my absolute FAVORITES!!!! I could totally eat it 3 times a week. I go ahead and let the mint and red onion marinate with the zucchini, AND I toast the pecans, which REALLY adds a wonderful flavor. If I don't have chicken, I've substituted really good feta for the protein and it was amazeballs :-)
