With swivel-blade peeler, peel 2 green zucchini and 2 golden zucchini lengthwise into 3/4-inch-wide strips, stopping at seeded center of each. Discard seeded centers. Cut 2 carrots into matchstick strips. Transfer vegetables to colander; toss with 1/2 tsp kosher salt. Let stand 30 minutes; drain. Rinse vegetables, pat dry with paper towels and transfer to large bowl. Meanwhile, mix 2 diced seeded beefsteak tomatoes, 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, 4 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, 1 minced small garlic close, 1 tsp chopped fresh oregano and 1/2 minced jalapeno pepper in bowl. Top veggies with tomato mixture and 6 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese.
