Toasted Pita with Mint, Cucumber, and Tomato Salad

Toasted Pita with Mint, Cucumber, and Tomato Salad

Put late-summer tomatoes to good use in this bright and herby salad. For even more color, leave the cucumber unpeeled--English cucumber skin is thin enough to be palatable. Make this dish close to serving time so it doesn't become watery.
