Preparation

Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper.

Brush pitas with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the dressing. Place on greased grill or grill pan over medium-high heat; cook, turning once, until crisp, about 2 minutes per side. Cut into quarters.

In large bowl, toss greens with 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the remaining dressing. Divide among plates; place tomato slices around edges. Break tuna into chunks; sprinkle over greens. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and remaining dressing. Serve with pitas.

Additional information :

Substitution: Use canned sardines or salmon instead of the tuna. Sardines are rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

If you prefer, use basil, thyme or chervil instead of the rosemary.
