Servings 3


  • 2 medium-large heirloom tomatoes (any color), sliced
  • 1-2 medium just-ripe peaches, sliced into wedges
  • 3-4 cups arugula
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, torn if large
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, plus more to taste, if needed
  • 1/2 tsp ground sumac
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, raw honey, sumac, red pepper flakes, sea salt and black pepper. Place tomato slices and red onion in a shallow dish and cover with the dressing. Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  2. Carefully toss together the arugula, peaches and mint. Once the tomatoes and onions are done marinating, gently remove from the marinade and add to the arugula mixture. Do NOT add all the marinating liquid, as there will be a lot of water from the tomatoes. However, you may want to drizzle on a little bit for flavor.

  3. Taste and add more extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt and/or black pepper, if needed.
