No recipe is needed for this quick, easy and delicious salad. I started with homemade no pocket pita bread
purchased from a vendor at the farmers’ market, grilled it, and topped it with bits of ingredients that I always have in the fridge.
The hot pita absorbs the dressing easily and it becomes one of the most flavorful elements in this dish.
Add fresh greens, arugula is my favorite, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, Greek olives, crumbled feta and toasted pine nuts and you have the
perfect summer meal. I added slices of leftover grilled steak, but shrimp, chicken or lamb would be delicious too.
I would add a scoop of hummus if I had it, but it is hearty and flavorful enough without it.
A simple vinaigrette whisked up with fresh chopped oregano, mint and cracked pepper is all the dressing this salad needs.
I used sliced chicken breast instead of steak in this version of an open faced pita sandwich.
I added that scoop of hummus and one of tzatziki sauce and used the same simple dressing.
I promise, it tastes as good as it looks.
