Greek Salad Pita Sandwiches

February 8, 2012

This is one of those meals that is perfect for taking leftovers to work for lunch the next day. I’ve even used leftovers as a dip eaten with pita chips. It’s a very adaptable recipe, too. Don’t like cilantro? Substitute parsley in its place. Don’t like radishes? Leave them out or even substitute something crunchy like jicama. Craving meat? Saute some chicken or shrimp, chop it up and add it to your sandwich.

I love the Mediterranean flavor of these sandwiches. They are so fresh and tasty that you might forget how healthy you are eating! Speaking of eating healthy, are you trying to eat healthier in 2012?
