IIIII may have tweaked this recipe a little and posted it up on my blog

Used the pita as a open sandwich/pizza type of thing so I could fit more topping on it, spread laughing cow at the base, used spinach and basil instead of lettuce and mint, aaaaand topped it off with some light Greek yogurt and an extra sprinkle of oregano for good measure, SO good! :D

Really quick, easy and tasty lunch. I used tortilla wraps instead of pitta and added a smidge of mayo before the filling, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Tasted very fresh.

I've added chopped green olives and finely chopped spring onions. I also added the cucumber (without the seeds) coarsely ground and squeezed (in order to remove its juice). A bit of olive oil brings everything together. Fantastic dish :)
