Inspired by... salad

Love salad?
Me too!
But often sometimes it's a pain I don't have time to chop and cut up everything to make one.
Love cucumbers?
Me too!
I used to slice them up and make sandwiches.
But often sometimes those sandwiches just weren't enough to fill me up.

Somewhere along the way I came up with the idea (by no means an original idea)  to make a mini version of the salad I wanted (less work), with lots of cucumber and stuff it in a pita!

Yum!
These babies fill me up every time!


Here's my recipe:

Garden Salad Pita Pockets

2-3 Tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped avacado
1 tsp dill
1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
1 whole pita (2 halves)
Prepare first 5 ingredients and add to mixing bowl. Add dill and Mural of Flavor.  Add mayonnaise.  Mix well.  Stuff, gently, into pita pockets.  Enjoy!

Notes:  I love to make these when we have leftover salmon in the house.  Double yum!  I've also been known to boil up 4-5 shrimp, dice them small and add them to the salad.  Feel free to substitute to your own tastes, just make sure you dice/chop things small to avoid tearing the pita pocket.

About Penzey's Spices:  My friend, K., introduced me to Penzey's two Christmas' ago.  I compared them to what I could buy at the local grocer, both price per ounce and quality - in my opinion Penzey's wins hands down.  Everything they make is gluten-free with the exception of a couple of their soup starters.  This is a down-to-earth, love to cook - cook to love business and I highly recommend them!  They've recently expanded into several new markets.  Check their website, they might have a store near you! (they have no idea I'm saying this or even have a blog, they simply know me as a customer)

I'd love to hear about any recipes you've "invented."

What's your favorite way to make a salad?

On another note:

My brother's in town this week.  I'm super excited to have him here!  

Please forgive me if it takes me longer than usual to respond to your comments.  I read every one and am always blessed by what you have to say! 

We're heading out to lunch now... 
Hmm, maybe I'll have a salad, since someone else will have to do all the prep work! 

Blessings,
