  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 pita breads
  • 6 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 2 cans solid or chunk tuna drained
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seed
Dressing:

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.
