Yum! Another reviewer suggested the chow mein noodles, and yes, they are a must! Also, since the coleslaw mix was used, I didn't see the need for another shredded carrot. I made my own honey mustard dressing (really just honey and mustard). I used just lunch meat mesquite turkey instead of the chicken, but I'm sure any meat would be great. What a great lunch idea with some yougart! Will make these often! Update: Low and behold our grocer ran out of coleslaw mix over a holiday weekend, so I had to find a substitute. Brocolli slaw mix works very well with this reciepe as well!

Wonderful!!!! I ended up using tortillas instead of pita bread. The kids all loved it. I also added some chowmein noodles for more crunch.
