Mediterranean Zucchini Cakes

I know the picture doesn't make these little treasures look appetizing, but trust me, they truly are.  I love the combination of the zucchini with the feta and pine nuts.  Super delicious!  They make the perfect side dish for your protein.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1 lb zucchini, grated
-1 tsp salt
-3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
-2 large eggs, slightly beaten
-3 green onions, sliced
-4 Tbs flour
-1/4 cup pine nuts, chopped
-1 tsp dried dill or 1 Tbs fresh, chopped
-1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1/2 tsp ground pepper
-extra virgin olive oil, for frying
Directions:
Combine the grated zucchini with the salt and let it sit for 5 minutes only.  Rinse, then squeeze dry.  It's really important for the zucchini to be really dry, otherwise the cakes will be a mushy mess!  Set aside.
Combine the feta, eggs, onion, flour, pine nuts. dill, oregano, garlic and pepper in a large bowl.  Mix well.  Fold in the zucchini.
Heat some oil in a large skillet.
Form zucchini mixture into cakes, then drop into hot oil.  Turn once until browned on both sides (cook for about 3 minutes per side).  
Serve immediately.  Enjoy!
