Pita pockets


You can make great sandwiches out of pita bread. Warm them, cut them into pockets and fill them with nearly anything you like.


2 pita bread (large)
4 sli cheese (thin)
4 sli ham (thin)
8 tomato (cherry tomatoes, rinsed, cut in half)
  salad leaves (washed and sliced)
1⁄2 c dip (tzatziki)


Warm the pita bread under the broiler, in the oven, or one by one in the microwave oven. Cut them in half to make to pockets.

Put 2 tablespoons sauce at the bottom of one pita pocket. Fill with a few salad leaves, 1 slice cheese, 1 slice ham, 4 cherry tomato halves. Fill the other pita pockets the same way.

Eat now or wrap in a sustainable sanwich bag, parchment paper, foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed.


To open the pocket in the microwave oven, place a pita half on a microwave safe dish or paper towel and heat on high for 8 to 20 seconds. It should open on its own or you would only need to press a little to open the pocket.
