I am always on the lookout for healthy meal ideas that my kiddos will love. I also love to try new things and experiment with the food we eat. Since my son loves salad and pita bread, I put them together to make a salad pita. He loved it and even tried to steal mine.
This is such a simple idea.
- Make a salad using ingredients you like. We used what we had on had which was green leaf lettuce, kale, carrots, broccoli, and ranch dressing.
- Stuff your salad into a pita.
I bought whole wheat pitas for this meal. When buying pitas you will notice that some are labeled as pocketed. Be sure to get pitas that you can stuff. The ones I picked up at the store were pocketed on the inside, but I had to cut the very top of the pita off to create an opening.
This was truly an enjoyable lunch for my family. It was more filling than just a salad but more vibrant and nutritious than the sandwiches we usually eat around here. Try it and let me know what you think. Feel free to leave a comment. Share and let’s talk about it.
