Sockeye Greek Style Pita Pockets

All the flavors of Greece in a handy pita pocket. Olives, feta, canned salmon and veggies are topped with vinaigrette for a tasty and healthy meal.

Servings: 4

Cook Time: 19 mins.


1/2 cup Greek or Italian vinaigrette dressing

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano

2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic

1 can (14.75 oz.) or 2 cans (7.5 oz. each) canned sockeye salmon, drained

1 large ripe tomato, diced

1/2 cup diced onion

1/2 cup diced cucumber

3/4 cup diced red or green bell pepper

1/3 cup chopped black or Kalamata olives

1/3 cup crumbled Feta cheese

4 large pocketed pitas

8 leaves green leaf lettuce

Tzatziki sauce (optional)


In a large bowl, whisk together the vinaigrette, oregano and garlic. Add the salmon, tomato, onion, cucumber, bell pepper, olives and Feta cheese. Toss to combine and coat with dressing.

Cut pitas in half and insert a leaf of lettuce into each one. Divide salmon salad between pitas.

Cook’s tip: The pitas can also be lightly grilled. Place the whole pitas on the hot grill and cook on each side for about 1 minute, or until light grill marks form and pitas are warmed.
