Mediterranean Tuna Pita

(Sunday, January 15th, 2012)

Recipes by Sarah Lasry & Kosherstreet.com

This Mediterranean Tuna Pita was something I use to make all the time. For some reason I have not made it in ages, but it is really just the perfect quick and easy lunch. I love the addition of the sweet crunchy apples in my tuna salad. It is a really terrific twist to a delicious and tangy tuna sandwich.

Tip: I use this dressing for a myriad of dishes. I find it works particularly well as a marinade for tilapia, salmon or tuna steak.

If you are not interested in eating any type of bread – this tuna salad also works its magic on a simple bed of crispy iceberg lettuce!

Ingredients:

2 whole wheat pitas, halved

1 can of dark tuna

1 green apple, peeled & diced

1 Asian red pear, diced

½ cup shredded carrots

½ avocado, diced (optional)

1 cup shredded romaine lettuce

For Dressing:

1 heaping tbsp. mayonnaise (lite is fine)

1 tbsp. sweet teriyaki

1 tsp. spicy Dijon mustard

½ tsp. ginger powder

½ tsp. garlic powder

Directions:

Warm up your pita breads in the microwave oven for 30 seconds and set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, mash your tuna and then add all the apple, pear and carrots. Mix gently with a spoon. Stuff the whole wheat pitas with shredded lettuce and then add your tuna mixture and top off with sliced avocado.

For the dressing: In a small bowl, add all your dressing ingredients and mix well with a fork till well combined. Pour over your tuna in pita and enjoy!
