It’s been too long friends! Spring Break hit us over the head, then a few days out of town, plus regular life stuff, and now I’m just getting back up to speed! So sorry for the absence. I brought you a rather wonderful sandwich today, so hopefully you’ll forgive me. Or at least have your mouth so full that you can’t complain.
I love sandwiches. Hot, cold, white bread, buns, whatever. I love them. This pita stuffed with goodness is no different. I’ve eaten this sandwich like it’s my JOB for about the last two months. It’s that good. And it’s meatless. Which is kind of just an added bonus.
It’s super easy to assemble, I’d recommend doing a lot of chopping at once so you can just pull what you need each day. You’re going to want to eat this all week, so no reason not to.

If you have a mandoline type slicer this can go super fast. I have a cheapo one from Crate & Barrel so don’t feel like you have to spend a ton on one. And if you don’t have one at all, that’s cool too. Don’t sweat it.
Thinly slice the radish and cucumber. Chop the red onion into small pieces. I want to take a bite and not have stuff hanging out of my mouth. If you like, add a little lemon zest to the hummus, it adds a nice dimension. Slice your pita in two.
Smear the hummus on the inside of the pita. Add the greens (baby lettuces, spinach, mache, whatever you like), cukes, radishes, and red onion. If you like, a little salt and pepper is also fine. But the feta is salty so you might want to try it without salt first. Then, sprinkle on the feta cheese. Presto! A magic and wonderful little lunch! Of course you could add meat if you like, but it’s perfectly satisfying without it. As the season provides them, I’m sure some tomatoes would also be great tucked inside.
I sliced up a little mango to go along with mine. You can choose whatever your normal lunch accoutrements are. Sweet potato chips are also tasty.
What do you think? Would you give it a try? I could definitely see serving these at a luncheon, they’re easy to make and perfect light eating for spring and summer. You just FEEL healthier eating them.
Do you have a favorite sandwich? Will you eat the same thing over and over, or do you always fix something new?
