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!

    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!
