Yum! I couldn't find any mini pita pockets, so I just made some smaller ones from Pita Bread -- Using the Master Recipe #309834 to use instead. I mistakenly added some chopped garlic to the oil mixture because I found myself reading two recipes at once (totally different recipes that just happened to be on the counter together, and the first couple of ingredients were pretty similar, so I ended up adding the garlic to this from the other recipe before I caught myself, lol). I actually really enjoyed the garlic in it, so my screw-up worked out quite well, lol! I don't have a real grill, but my ridged grill pan on the stovetop worked like a charm. This would be a perfect light summer lunch with a big glass of iced tea and some fresh fruit to round it out. I would definitely make this again, thanks for posting :)!
