WHO: Rivka is a healthcare consultant and food blogger living in Washington, DC — and an all-star Food52er.

WHAT: A classic Middle Eastern salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and pita — all dressed up for the peak of tomato season.

HOW: Whisk together a bright, herby dressing, toss with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs, and pita. Let marinate for a half hour, then serve.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Rivka’s dressing, tart with pomegranate molasses and spiced with mint and sumac, is the perfect outfit for gorgeous greenmarket tomatoes and cucumbers. We’ll be making this salad until summer becomes fall. Note: If you want the pita to stay crunchy, add them in as a garnish just before serving.
