Feta Tuna Pockets...Not Your Everyday Tuna Sandwich

Continuing on the Middle Eastern theme, here is another nice idea for a great lunch or light summer supper. These sandwiches are made with pita bread. Pita is lower in sugar, yet satisfies those carb cravings. To make your pocket sandwich even healthier, look for whole wheat types which will add extra flavor.
Feta Tuna Pockets
1 6 oz can tuna, drained
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped onions
2 Tbsp reduced fat feta cheese
2 oz. light salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip Light....I prefer the Hellman's Canola Mayonnaise)
3 Tbsp hummus
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 squeeze lemon (use the rest in a tall cold glass of iced tea)
6 6-in perforated pita pockets

In a large bowl, mix tuna, celery, onion, feta, salad dressing or mayo, hummus, basil and lemon. Lightly coat one side of each pita with olive oil or cooling spray (PAM)...try the Olive Oil PAM! Place pitas oil side down on a griddle or pan over medium heat for 30 seconds to a minute. Remove warm pitas from pan and split in half along perforation. Open pitas at tear and fill each half with the tuna salad.

  1. I never thought of feta and hummus in a tuna pocket. What a unique and interesting combination of ingredients. You know, I'd be willing to try that!
