Serves 8 (serving size: 2 1/2 tbsp. ricotta, 1/3 cup vegetables, and 3 pita pieces)

“I’ve always been inspired by the phrase ‘what grows together goes together,’ ” says chef Ana Sortun. “This salad is a wonderful way to enjoy what the end of summer offers.”


How to Make It

Step 1

Place ricotta and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Using a whisk, whip until cheese is creamy, smooth, and resembles whipped cream but with a stiffer texture. Spread onto a platter to 1/2-inch thickness.

Step 2

Combine tomato, cucumber, peppers, and scallions in a bowl. Stir in 1 tablespoon oil and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Scatter vegetables over cheese; sprinkle with sumac and mint. Drizzle remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil on top. Serve with pita.
