Recipe Winner in Taste of Home....Pita Sandwiches

I saw this recipe in a recent Taste of Home magazine (Aug/Sept).  It sounds very good and easy to make so thought I would post it.  If you have magazine, it is on page 68.  Contributor, from NY, won Second Place in "Wholesome in Minutes" Contest.

@walker  - sounds delish, thank you for posting! I would add some chopped walnuts and diced white cheddar cheese

Used to make an easy "rip-off" pita sandwich from a Detroit area restaurant called a "Middle Eastern". No real measurements, just faked it.

 

Browned ground beef, seasoned with your choice

Diced tomatoes

Diced cucumnbers (fairly fine)

Diced onions (just a bit)

Ranch dressing

 

Place in pita half, drizzle with ranch dressing

I love chicken salad, and just might try this, @walker. Thanks!

 

My absolute fave chicken salad uses Major Grey Chutney mixed with mayo and a dash of curry powder. Mix with chicken, apples, celery and nuts.

TDF!

Perfect for a hot day. Might change out the pineapple for grapes.

I love Taste of Home!

 

This sounds good except I would substitute dried cherries and add almonds or cashews.  

 

I also don't ever buy or eat R chicken.  We have a farm nearby where we buy our chicken and now I've been spoiled Smiley Happy
