I had the cabbage on hand, but in my hunger forgot to add it. This was an excellent lunch! Read More

This was a very good one-dish meal. I used black beans, and instead of canned tomatoes, I used fresh tomatoes and added a generous amount of Bueno green chilies. I also subbed shallot for onion and added avocado. The dressing is like a Mexican-inspired honey mustard--very flavorful. I wouldn't skip the lettuce, because it keeps the liquid from saturating the pita. This is also delicious just as a veggie salad. Read More

Outstanding recipe! I think the dressing is what really makes the dish. I make it as a salad and pour the dressing over it and eat it without pitas also, and it's great. Read More

I made these for lunch and had everything on hand except the cabbage. I had avocado and added cubes of that instead. It makes a tasty sandwich. A great way to use up veggies! Read More
