What’s better than eating a delicious bowl of Greek salad for lunch? Eating that same yummy salad in a toasted pita sandwich! Greek salads are famous for their bright, fresh flavors– not to mention how healthy the salads are in general.
We felt extra Mediterranean with this recipe; combining not only a Greek salad within a warm pita pocket, but also dressing the salad with a light tzatziki sauce for that extra goodness. (Pita is the perfect type of bread to eat and not feel guilty, due to its low carb content and uh-mazing taste!)
This sandwich is the perfect pre-workout fuel. It’s light, satisfying, and gives tons of energy thanks to its complex carb content. You get your healthy dose of veggies and motivation to hit the gym!
