Preheat the oven to 450°.

Meanwhile, bring a pot to boil. Cook brown rice, and set aside to cool.

Toss the zucchini with olive oil and salt on a cookie sheet and place on top rack of oven. Cook for 7-10 minutes or until just browned. Set aside to cool.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, finishing with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until well combined, and refrigerate to chill.
