Pronounced (pahn bahn-YAHT) it's a traditional sandwich from Nice, France. Basically a salad on a bun, except here the bun is replaced with a pita pocket(although you are free to use a bun if you like). It works nicely, holding in all the ingredients and lovely juices. What seems like a simple sandwich is actually full of flavor. This is gluten free if eaten witha gluten free pita pocket or just as a salad.
