Pita bread is a versatile alternative to standard sliced bread, and can be cut in half then opened up to form neat pockets, ready to be stuffed with the filling of your choice. In this recipe, pita bread is filled with a combination of traditional Greek salad and velvety smooth hummus to make a delicious and nutritious meal-in-a-pocket.

1 cup shredded romaine (cos) lettuce
1 tomato—finely chopped
½ cup finely diced cucumber
8 thin slices red onion
¼ green pepper (capsicum)—finely diced
1 oz (30g) crumbled feta cheese
4 pitted black olives—sliced
½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
½ tablespoon lemon juice
A pinch each of sea salt and black pepper
4 tablespoons store-bought hummus (or homemade )
2 whole grain pita breads—halved, opened into pockets



MIX together all the ingredients, except the hummus and bread, in a bowl until well combined. SPREAD 2 tablespoons of hummus inside each pita and fill with equal amounts of the filling to serve.
