Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 ripe medium tomato, seeded, diced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 oz)
  • 12 kalamata or other large ripe olives, pitted, coarsely chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 2 cans (5 oz each) tuna in water, drained, flaked
  • 12 leaves romaine lettuce, torn in half
  • 6 pita (pocket) breads (6 inch), cut in half to form pockets

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, stir together lemon juice, oil, garlic and salt with whisk. In medium bowl, toss cucumber, tomato, cheese, olives and tuna. Pour dressing over salad; toss until coated.
  • 2
    Place 1 lettuce leaf half in each pita pocket; top each leaf with 1/2 cup tuna salad. Serve immediately.

  • We like to use English or hot house cucumbers because they have far fewer seeds than the regular cucumbers.
  • Pitted kalamata olives can be found in jars in the olive section of your grocery stores, as well as in the deli section. They have a sharper, richer flavor than regular canned ripe olives.
