I LOVE that I get to have this entire plate of food, including a sandwich, all for 300+ calories. emoticon

Believe it or not, this is a Greek Pita, altho' because I'd made naan rather than pita & because they didn't puff & open up like pita, I placed the ingredients on TOP of the naan.
Added 2 tbsp hummus, 1/2 cup lettuce (forgot to chop it), 1/4 small cucumber, 1 small tomato, 2 tbsp LF plain Greek yogurt, 1 oz FF feta, 1/8 cup raw onions & then did a dressing of 1 tsp each olive oil & white wine vinegar & 1/4 tsp Dijon mustard. With the orange, it was a nice, colorful meal.

    You should start a cooking show. I don't like hummus but I would eat that. So pretty!

Oh boy, this was a GREAT salad! From farmer's market: spring mix greens & heirloom tomatoes & freshly picked arugula from my OWN garden! Then moroccan sweet potatoes, hard boiled egg, colby jack cheese (1/8 c), 1T sour cream, 2 T Newman's Own salsa, dash of toasted hemp seed & little dish of cantaloupe on the side. YUM--MERS!!!!!! Didn't even need salad dressing!
