My niece just loved this and it was perfect for her "snack time" at school. She's too little to assemble the pita herself or at least that's my thought so I assembled it for her and added some cheddar cheese. I kept the ranch dressing in a container for her to dip the sandwich into. I added a little bag of red grapes and off she went!

Great for a quick lunch. Also spread on tortillas and rolled up. At this point you could slice it into generous slices for a pinwheel effect. And, as the cook notes, there are numerous combinations for this sammy.

I loved this, so easy. I did cheat a little, added shredded cheddar cheese because I am a cheese nut. Thanks for sharing.
