Greek Salad Stuffed Pitas...

I don't know about you guys, but we can't get enough salads over here during these summer months! Here's another great option to add to your repertoire! Super simple, light, fresh, and fast!
Salad Ingredients:
Head of Romaine
1 lb. chicken tenders
1/4 thinly sliced red onion
1/2 thinly sliced bell pepper
1/2 thinly sliced cucumber
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
**olives, optional

Dressing Ingredients:
6 TBSP red wine vinegar
5 TBSP Olive Oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp Dijon mustard

Additional Ingredients:
Pita Breads sliced in half
2 TBSP fresh lemon juice for your chicken


Directions:
Prep your chicken and brown it in a skillet with 1 TBSP Grape Seed Oil. I also added 2 TBSP of freshly squeezed lemon juice while it cooked to give it more flavor, then I seasoned the tenders with s & p and let them cook until both sides were browned. Chop the chicken when it's done cooking to top your salad. To prep your salad, simple- wash and slice your veggies, add your chicken, feta, and dressing right before serving and toss well. Fill your pitas with your salad mix and enjoy!
