cumin marinated zucchini with golden raisins

One of my go-to salads is marinated zucchini. I’ve done it before, and I didn’t invent it, but I’m on my way to reinventing it. Here’s attempt numero uno:

1 medium zucchini, thick julienne (wide tooth blade on a mandoline)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp evoo
1/2-1 small garlic clove, grated
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tsp fresh thyme
3/4 tsp cumin
1/4 cup golden raisins, soaked in hot water and drained

Combine all ingredients and allow the salad to marinate anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours, depending on how tangy you like it.
