I made this for lunch for my friend and I yesterday and it was SO good. My pitas were not whole wheat, but other than that, that was the only modification I made. Next time, I will make more yogurt because it was so tasty that we wanted to use it generously. I used a few dashes of hot pepper sauce versus a single dash. Not only was it extremely tasty, it was very easy to make. My friend asked for the recipe. This is going into my keeper file. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT9.

I absolutely adore the addition of yogurt. I always make tzatziki so this was a welcoming change, and a way to use up the leftover yogurt. I added some quartered cherry tomatoes and celery, and served it with some grilled chicken (no pita). This was not only healthy but also satisfying and very tasty. Thank you!

We really enjoyed this. Instead of putting the salad into the pitas, I plated it and served the pitas cut into wedges on the side - less mess that way. My husband said this is the kind of thing that he likes to eat for dinner in hot weather so we will have this often during the summer.

Fantastic! Made as directed except for one change- used mixed bean sprouts instead of mixed baby greens. This is delish served on mini whole wheat pitas with non-fat yoghurt drizzled on top. Made it for lunch and could not wait to get home to eat some more. I will make this again and again for sure. Thanks for posting this!

Nice, light and healthy sandwich. I made half the recipe for the two of us. Next time, though, I would incease both the amount of stuffing (by a bit) and the dressing (double it). The dressing was very good but quite thick (I used Greek yogurt), so it didn't distribute well inside the pitas. You might want to mix half of it in with the chickpea mixture first. I'm not sure what an English cucumber is so I just used a regular seeded cucumber. I served with extra tabasco on the side. Thanks for this very tasty sandwich recipe!

this was so flavorful and nutritious without any of the guilt. i was at a dead end about what to fix for a light dinner today, and this resolved that dilemma quite nicely. i did double the cumin in this one. we were eating this even as i was assembling it, so regrettably, i couldn't take a photo. but if you'll take my word instead, it's delicious.
