Tropical Fruit Breakfast Smoothie.
[social_warfare]I made us the best pita sandwiches for lunch today!
Because one, we are coming up on zucchini season. Two, it is picnic and grilling season. And three, I am nervous and apparently that makes me want awesome Greek food.
Ok, well that last one is not so true. Yes, I am nervous, but when I am nervous I really just can’t sit still and I fidget… ALOT. Traveling makes me so nervous, I hate flying and the whole airport thing. It’s just never very fun, at least for me… and especially when your flight leaves at 1:10am.
Not sure what I was thinking when I thought the whole 1:10am thing was a good idea.
I guess I still think it is a good idea because instead of wasting a whole day traveling I am wasting a whole night. It works, but you know I am anxious. Truth is I would be anxious no matter what, that’s just the way I am.
Anyway, these sandwiches I made us today?
I think they would be kind of perfect to pack up for lunch. Maybe not to take on an airplane because they might get a little messy, but a summer picnic for sure!
Honestly, I kind of loaded these up with some seriously good stuff.
Let’s just make a list of what is in these:
First up, the greek olive pesto. I promise this is so good. Even my mom who is not an olive fan, really loved this pesto. It’s salty, cheesy and just a little sweet from the olives. It’s also a good way to change things up a little instead of using basil pesto.
Second, FRIED ZUCCHINI!! Nothing more to say here other than that we should all be making these everyday this summer.
Third, marinated feta. I know that feta on it’s own is totally awesome, but marinated in olive oil and summer herbs takes it to a whole new level. Trust me.
Fourth, the slightly crunchy chickpeas (or garbanzo beans). They add a little texture and crunch to the mix. Plus a little protein, you know, to hold us over till umm…we need some chocolate or something.
Fifth, a little sun-dried tomatoes and arugula. These are for added color and really, I just love sun-dried tomatoes.
Sixth? Pita bread!! Mmmm, that and naan, so good.
Next, put the whole thing on the grill to get it all toasted and warm. Delish.
Of course if you don’t have access to a grill or oven, this step can be skipped, but we love everything a little warm over here.
Oh and bonus points if served up with some watermelon on the side.
I feel like every summer dish is not complete without a little watermelon, you know?

Well watermelon and fried zucchini!
1 cup large egg?
Sorry for any confusion, that should read “1 large egg”. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
I made this as a weeknight meal so didn’t have time to marinate the feta – I used normal feta instead. My boyfriend is extremely happy with this meal so thank you for creating the recipe. We’ll be having this one again soon!
Awesome! I am thrilled that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for making it! Happy Friday:) xTieghan
