Mushroom Pita Pockets

Mushroom Pita Pockets created by loof751

Here is a fresh and crunchy salad filling for a low-fat sandwich. For a totable lunch, pack the salad separately in a plastic container and fill pitas just before eating. Just simply delicious!! I found this recipe in our local newspaper.

    Great quick, easy and light recipe! I don't care for raw onion so left them out and used mozzarella cheese. I think these would also be great heated up so the cheese could melt a bit. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
