Tasty Tuesday: Clean Eating Greek Salad with Baked Pita Bread.

 Mmmm I want to make this and eat it for lunch every day. Such a nice change from the go-to turkey sandwich.

Greek Salad with Baked Pita Bread
Recipe and photo found here.

2 6-inch whole-wheat pitas
1 English cucumber, unpeeled and chopped
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 15-oz can low-sodium chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp lemon juice
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
2 oz low-fat feta cheese, crumbled
Paprika for garnish

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut each pita into 4 strips and cut each strip into 1-inch triangles, splitting apart the 2 “sides” of the pita as you cut. Spread on a baking sheet and toast in oven until pita is crispy, about 10 minutes, tossing once.

In a large bowl, combine cucumber, tomatoes, onion, chickpeas and parsley. Add oil, lemon juice and pepper; toss well. Add feta and toasted pita and toss again. Garnish with a dash of paprika and serve immediately.
