Mediterranean Salad in Pita Bread

This is a delicious salad recipe that I learned from the grand master Jamie Oliver, you guys will love it. This is one of my favorites salads and I'm pretty sure you will be able to enjoy it as well. But in this case, because I was hungrier then a salad can take care of, I transformed it into a kind of sandwich with a pita bread (feel free to use a different kind of bread, but try to use one that is hard enough that won’t get soak with the salad dressing).

Check it out how it is ease!

4 leafs of lettuce (make sure to not have too much lettuce in your salad)
1 big tomato
A handful of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cucumber
1/2 purple onion
½ Red chili pepper with no seed
2 table spoon of cottage cheese
3 black olives with no seed
Black pepper
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
One pita bread

First we need to chop up all ingredients. In Jamie Oliver’s book he ask to make the salad and serve it in a wooden cutting board, so while you go chopping each ingredient you put them together and keep chopping everything in one big mixture. Use a big sharp knife to do this.

So after you chop the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, red chili pepper, basil, cottage cheese and the olives, mix everything really well with the same knife you used to chop it up. Make a little hole in the center of the mixture over the wooden board, and add something around 2 table spoon of olive oil and one table spoon of the balsamic vinegar. Add some black pepper and salt, and mixture everything up again.

At this stage your salad is ready to go, but if you want to give an upgrade like I did, warm up a pita bread for about 10 minutes in the oven and then put the salad over it. Trust me, it will be one of the best salads you will ever have.
