Tomato Basil-Bean Salad

Rinse and drain beans and put in a bowl with the chopped tomatoes. Heat olive oil in a frying pan, and add in your diced red onions. When onions have browned/caramelized, add in the chopped zucchini and cook till the zucchini has just begun to soften, then transfer to the bowl with the tomato and beans. Throw in the sliced basil and then toss it all together with the pressed garlic, vinegar and salt. Allow the salad time to cool/marinate in the fridge before serving.
