There is only one word for this sandwich; YUM!

Greek pita sandwich

Once again we’ve invited Leslie from Dishing With Leslie to share one of her delicious recipes with Skinny Ms. We love this recipe for her Greek pita sandwich and think you will as well.

“I have made this a few times over the past month. I first started by trying to add the tomatoes and olives to the skillet. But have found that it turns out better and tastes better by adding them at the end. So good! My husband LOVES this sandwich!”  -Leslie

Sandwiches are a great option for lunch because they are convenient and easy to prepare. Unfortunately, sandwiches can get unhealthy quickly, especially if you overdo it with condiments or you choose the wrong type of bread. Sandwiches are a lunch favorite, but they tend to be dry and bland if you do not use condiments – unless you know how to pick the best sandwich ingredients.

This Greek pita sandwich recipe is bright and flavorful. It is loaded with healthy ingredients, but there is no shortage of taste, either. When you mix together bold tastes, such as feta cheese, onion, and olives, there is bound to be a flavor overload.

If you are looking for a healthy, big-on-flavor sandwich, this is it. Sandwich fans rejoice! We have plenty of options for you and your lunchbox. Check out our veggie pesto sandwich or our roasted pear sandwich with baby spinach.

  1. The nutritional analysis is SO WRONG! Redo your carbohydrates! The chicken would produce some cholesterol and where did the 23g of fibre come from???????

  2. Sounds good. Wish you would put the actual spices on not a store bought blend. They have additives that we dont need and are much more expensive then a few spices we have in the cupboard.  They dont use blend packages in Greece.
