Greek Salad Pita

Greek Salad Pita

Let me first start by wishing everyone a Happy New Year! What did you do for the holiday? Anything fun or crazy? My New Year’s Eve was extremely laid back. Joshua and I cooked up some pizzas made with Portland Pie Dough and binge watched some episodes of Psych. Because we are all caught up on our favorite television programs (The Walking DeadGame of ThronesAmerican Horror Story), we have resorted to throwing it back to 2006. 2006 had some pretty hilarious comedies out on cable: The OfficeMonk, and Psych. But, I digress. Our holiday was quiet, and we fell asleep by 10:30 PM. We didn’t even attempt to keep our eyes open for the ball to drop. Oh well.

 

 

So, what’s in store for the New Year? Well, we’re going to start off with some healthy recipes to jumpstart the year. I’m not big on making New Year’s Resolutions, but I do like to start the New Year with some healthy foods stocked in my refrigerator. I think I drank and ate a little too much within the past few weeks. Now, I’m craving all of the salads and smoothies.

One of my favorite things to order when I’m out and about is a Greek salad. Not only are they really flavorful and satisfying to my palate, but they leave me feeling full and happy. A full Erin is an Erin you want to hang out with and take to the thrift store with you. This twist on a Greek salad is the perfect solution to your lunch worries. It’s easy to make and to share with your friends. To add a little crunch to this salad, you could even toast the pita before you serve your meal.

  • Welcome back, Erin! I still can’t believe it’s 2016, like, how did a whole year go by again? 2016 will be an exciting year (I say that every year, though) I will finally be a senior and start applying for college (a bittersweet moment). This Greek Salad Pita looks fabulous, I love Greek Salad anything 🙂 .
    • Hira – Thank you for the positive words. You will thrive where ever you decide to go for college. It’s a huge life choice, but take advice from adults and friends. When I was applying to colleges, I had my heart set on University of Delaware. When I didn’t get in, I was really upset, but decided to go to a state school instead. I did really well in the smaller classroom setting and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I’m not sure that I would’ve gotten the same educational needs met if I had gone to a big school.
  • I love American Horror Story! I haven’t watched the finale yet, but am sad the season is over. This pita looks delicious, Erin! So creative and sounds like the perfect lunch!
  • This looks absolutely delicious! I love how you can customize it to make it exactly what you’d want to eat. And leave or add ingredients that you don’t want or like. (not a big olive fan here, ha, but love red onions!) Great Greek restaurant that serves up items that look almost as good as your pita salad, but they don’t give a lot of meat (and I need that protein too to get me through the Thrift Stores. Ha. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!!!

  • Dear Erin, Happy New Year to you as well. May 2016 bring you joy, peace and happiness in all you do. This Greek salad pita is a great choice for the new year, light and so delicious! I know you’ve been super busy with first year teaching. I miss chatting with you more often, but know you are so busy these days!!! Keep up the good work all around. xo
  • Happy New Year to you too! I always order a Greek salad when it is on offer too. Anything that is topped with feta makes me very happy!
  • there’s a local restaurant that has the perfect falafels (wonderfully crispy and golden on the outside, tender on the inside), and they’re only 50 cents each!! i’m already scheming about how i’m going to make these (:
