Recipe by Gracielagata
A simple, yummy (and pretty healthy!) pita sandwich for one that can easily be made for more. Not sure where I got this, but I have modified it quite a bit since then. The nutrition part isn't truly correct since you don't actually keep the Caesar marinade in the pita--I wish there were a way to adjust for that.
- 4 ounces pork loin or 4 ounces pork chops
- 2 -4 garlic cloves
- 1⁄4 cup caesar salad dressing
- 1 pita bread
- 1 tablespoon low-fat ranch dressing
- 2 tablespoons chopped red onions
- 2 -3 tablespoons chopped tomatoes
- 2 ounces chopped spinach
- 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
Directions See How It's Made
- Chop pork up into very small bite sized pieces and marinate in the Caesar dressing with the chopped garlic. You can use more Caesar if needed, it isn't going to go in the pita, just to cook the pork. Marinate anywhere from an hour to until dinner time.
- Cook the pork however you want- I bake it at 350 for about 20 minutes or so, in the Caesar dressing still, to keep it moist. I would imagine you could broil it, sauté it; I have crock-potted it, but it wasn't as flavorful.
- Toast your pita, first having cut it in half for filling. A hint- i find that the pita doesn't crack and break as badly during filling if you toast it with foil balls inside it to help make the opening stay.
- Strain the pork out of the Caesar dressing and mix with all the other ingredients in a bowl, adding a bit of the cooked Caesar if you like it a bit more moist.
- Fill your pita and enjoy!
- ** Its great served with fresh fruit.**.
