CEIMB Greek Salad Pitas with Feta Spread and Turkey

This week's Craving Ellie in My Belly recipe was a good one! We made Greek Salad Pitas with Feta Spread and Turkey, selected by Jennifer of The Rookie Baker.

Because I am the first one to admit that yogurt really repulses me, obviously I did not put any of the feta spread on my own pita sandwich. However, I did make it for my husband, and he really loved it! It's a simple spread; you mash up some feta cheese with plain yogurt, then add in some fresh lemon zest and juice, dried oregano, and freshly ground black pepper. I made myself a roasted red pepper and feta spread, which turned out really yummy. I'll be blogging about that one soon.

This was such an easy little recipe to put together. It's just some deli-style turkey breast (I chose a lower-sodium variety), romaine lettuce leaves, sliced cucumber, and the spread wrapped up in a pita half. As you can see from our pictures, hubby added sliced kalamata olives to his, and he left his pita bread whole. Instead of stuffing the pita pocket, he just combined all his sandwich fixings and placed them on top of the pita, then folded it up like a tortilla.

I was grateful to have such a simple weeknight meal to make this week! Thanks to Jennifer for the great pick. If you'd like to see if the other CEIMBistas enjoyed this one, be sure to head over to the blogroll. For the full recipe, click here.


  1. Looks outstanding! I am going to make this when school starts again and I am in need of portable lunches. I figure I can either assemble or take all ingredients and assemble there...those olive look very tempting as well. You don't like yogurt? How can that be???? Looking forward to your red pepper spread recipe soon, too. Thanks in advance.

  2. This looks like it was a hit; I'm just sad I wasn't able to cook along since we were on vacation. Maybe I'll have to try to whip it up for lunch one day this week :) Looks great!

  3. This was good, wasn't it. Like the Hub's idea of adding olives. Delish.
