Greek Salad Pita Sandwiches

I'm going to say it, but you might not like it. I'm not, generally, a fan of Greek food. *gasp!* I do like dolmades (but prefer them Middles Eastern style) and feta, but that's really about it. I usually end up with heart burn when I eat Greek food and just never found anything that is vegetarian that I really, thoroughly enjoyed. That is, until I tried this recipe.

Greek salad was always hit and miss for me; I'll admit that almost each time I've tried it, I was in more of a "fast food" atmosphere and not a nice restaurant or at someone's home. My eyes have been opened! This salad is fresh and full of flavor, balanced by the taste of a delicious, warm pita. Great as a meal on its own, or served with a side, this will fill you up and taste delicious!

Recipe from the amazing Jeanne Lemlin's Quick Vegetarian Pleasures.


Yield: 4 servings.

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Freshly ground black pepper
1 bell pepper, cored and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup slivered red onion
1/4 pound (about 3/4 cup) feta cheese, crumbled
12 cherry tomatoes, halved, or 2 small tomatoes, cubed
1 1/2 cups diced romaine or iceberg lettuce
4 (6-inch) pita breads, halved

Ready for one of the easiest recipes ever?

In a large bowl, combine the oil, vinegar and oregano


Mix well and add all the shopped veggies. toss in the oil mixture and add the feta.

Serve immediately on warmed pita bread.

I'm not big on Greek food either. I'm sure this is just a terrible stereotype, but all I think of with Greek food is gyros, lamb, and feta (and you know I'm not a fan of feta!). I do love Middle Eastern food, though! Maybe I'd make this minus feta and with hummus instead. :)
