It’s been hot here lately.  Like, 100 degrees hot.  I’m never ready for the heat, but especially not in early May!  Thankfully, today it got really windy and must have blown in a cold front because I was in my sweatshirt by the evening and loving it. 

When it gets hot here I usually lose the will to cook.  I get tired and lazy and just want takeout or no cook meals.  I want cold fresh meals with lots of veggies.  These Mediterranean Chopped Salad Pitas are just that.

They’re refreshing, loaded with veggies and only require a bit of chopping.  I post a ton of Mexican recipes on here and sometime forget how much I love Mediterranean food.  It’s usually healthy, has lots of flavor and is perfect for summer.

It also gives me a good excuse to eat kalamata olives and feta cheese, two of my favorites!  If you’re not into pita, this chopped salad is pretty delicious on it’s own too :)  I hope everyone is staying cool out there and enjoying the last month before true summer hits!

      This looks great! Does it keep well? I’d love to make a big batch to meal prep for lunch. This looks like the anti-sad desk salad!

        Thanks Anna! I’d leave the dressing off and maybe keep the lettuce separate from the other veggies until the day of. I kept mine in the fridge for about 3 days and the lettuce seemed to wilt kinda fast being mixed in with everything else :)

    I am pretty jealous to hear its hot there. I feel like NYC is going through a cold front. We got teased with the warm 80’s last week. But when it gets hot hear it gets soo gross and humid! So this really a perfect dish for just that :) Thanks for sharing!

    This looks so yummy and refreshing! What pita bread did you use in the video? I have purchased several brands and they are always flat and flavorless- these look nice and fluffy!

    • She Likes Food says

      Thanks Jena! I actually can’t remember what brand it was, sorry! It was in the deli section of the grocery store though!

    This was a good chopped salad. I left out the dill and feta. I used regular vinegar over red wine vinegar. The salad tasted great and paired well with pita! The only thing I would change is next time I would store the lettuce separate from the rest of the mix. It wilted fast.

    • She Likes Food says

      My lettuce wilted a little faster too, I’ll add a note about that in the recipe. Glad you enjoyed it!

    I am looking forward to making this on the weekend and I have bought all of the ingredients but when I watched the video in the ingredients for the dressing it shows garlic being added but it is not included in the list of ingredients. Could you tell me how much was used. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.
