How to Make Mediterranean Chopped Salads in Pitas
The one thing I love about this salad is that you can literally use any veggies you have on hand. I like this recipe because it also helps me clean out the fridge of any product that needs to be used up.
For this actual recipe, I used cucumber, lettuce, one can of drained chickpeas, avocado, diced tomatoes, feta cheese, dill, and red onion.
Then, we made a mint yogurt tahini dressing to go on top that made this chopped salad SING!
Once you get it all mixed up together, stuff it inside a pita pocket for a delicious and tasty dinner. If you want, you can toast up the pitas — which takes about 3-5 minutes. It allows them to get crispier and adds a little crunch to the salad.
This salad really tastes amazing and is a great way to get a dose of veggies in for sure.
