Chickpea Salad Pockets

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario

I clipped this recipe from a magazine a few years ago and finally tried it. My very picky DD liked this dish :). It would be good for brown bag lunches. Just pack the salad mixture into a separate sealed container and fill your pitas when you're ready to eat.

One tomato was enough. I used cheddar cheese in mine. I used a bit less of 2 tbp of olive oil. I used lemon juice. Thanks for this healthy recipe, perfect for lunch. :) Made for 123 hit wonders
