Falafel Pita with Tzatziki and Tomato Salad

 Summer is coming- which means tomatoes! I am anticipating a delicious harvest but wanted to celebrate them a little early with this delicious Greek-inspired recipe. Ingredients: 2 plum tomatoes 1 red onion 1⁄2 pound package falafel 2 Mediterranean pitas  4 ounces tzatziki  vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, garlic Method : Cut tomatoes into 1⁄2-inch pieces. Finely chop 1⁄4 cup onion and 1 teaspoon garlic . In a medium bowl, whisk to combine 1 tablespoon vinegar and 2 tablespoons oil. Stir in tomatoes, chopped garlic , and onions; season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside until ready to serve. Shape falafel into 4 ( 1⁄2-inch thick) patties. Brush both sides of each pita lightly with oil. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium. Add 1 pita at a time and toast until warmed through. Wrap in foil or a clean kitchen towel as you go to keep warm. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in same skillet over medium-high. Add falafel and cook until golden-brown, 2–3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel
