Recipes Using Pita Bread

I am too frugal to spend my money out on a lunch each day. I take classes 4 full days a week. Everyone goes out and buys pizza, sub sandwiches, Chinese foods, etc. There is no way I will even start doing that. Most of the time, I bring what ever I make from my dinner the night before.


Now with the hot weather, I love cold sandwiches. Though I am fussy about making them fresh and not soggy for the next day.


  • Sandwich Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Hellman's mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon brown spicy mustard
  • 1 Tbsp dill relish
  • Tbsp salt & pepper to taste
  • Sandwich Fixings
  • 4 slices Plum tomato, paper thin
  • 1 handful romaine hearts, chopped fine
  • 1 Joseph's pita bread, cut in half
  • 1/8 lb rare roast beef, thin sliced
  • 1/8 lb provolone cheese, thin sliced
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Mix sandwich sauce ingredients and put into a tiny container.
  2. Chop lettuce and slice tomato. Put in a ziplock bag.
  3. Slice cheese and roast beef. Put in a ziplock bag.
  4. Cut pita bread and put half in ziplock bag.
  5. At lunchtime, take your pita pocket and open gently. Fill the bottom with a handful of lettuce, and a few slices of tomato. Then a spoonful of dressing spreading it across the bottom. Add 1/2 of the provolone cheese slices, and the slices of roast beef. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Add more lettuce and sliced tomato, and another large spoonful of dressing. Top off with 2 slices of provolone cheese, a dash of pepper.

  7. Lie pita sandwich flat. Hold it tightly together and using a sharp serrated knife, cut in half.

This make a delicious salad and roast beef sandwich in one. Enjoy! :)

Delicious and healthy, too. I usually double the dressing ingredients. You can use parsley or fresh mint instead of cilantro. You can also add some well drained, diced cucumber to the salad.

Combine all ingredients except pita bread in large bowl, mixing to coat with oil. Chill in refrigerator for 2-3 hours.


Cut pita bread into halves with scissors. Pull open to form pockets. Fill with chilled mixture.
