Veggie Pita Sandwich

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by AWinPA

This sandwich was my favorite on the menu at a deli on Williamson Road in Roanoke, VA in the early 90's. I cannot remember the name of the place or what they called this sandwich. I don't know if it is still there or not, as I only lived there 2 years, but I still make it today. It was served with potato chips and a pickle. Sweet potato chips or potato salad are good, too. Do not let the list of ingredients scare you off. I have substituted others or omitted some when needed.

What a great lunch! I used a mini pita so I couldn't fold it over. I used fat free cheeses,baby bells and instead of making my own dressing I just drizzled a low fat Greek vinaigrette on top. This was wonderful!! Thanks so much for posting! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the shredded cheeses on (not inside) the pita bread in microwave. Do NOT use an oven or broiler, as you want the bread to remain soft.
  2. Add spinach and lettuce leaves (uncut).
  3. Add remained sliced veggies, oil and vinegar.
  4. Fold in half and serve.
  5. NOTE: Do not add salt, as the cheese adds a sense of saltiness.
