Greek Salad Pita

Pretty sure this is what my lunch is going to look like every day this week:

This pita sandwich came together in a snap since many of the ingredients are already staples in my refrigerator. It also made the perfect post-gym snack this afternoon. It tastes extremely light and fresh, but packs some serious staying power-I can tell I’m going to be full for hours!

All I did was toss romaine lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes in lemon juice with a few dashes of pepper. Then, I spread roasted garlic hummus (my fav!) over a whole wheat pita, topped with quinoa, added the salad mixture and sprinkled with feta cheese. It was that easy.

The Kalamata Olive Hummus from Trader Joe’s would also be kickin’ in this. Try it!
