Greek Caesar Salad Pita Pockets With Spiced Meat Recipe




  • 2 (9.3 ounce) packages Fresh Express® Twisted Caesar Greek Chopped Salad Kit
  • 1 cup finely diced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground lamb or ground beef
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained
  • 3 teaspoons ZA’ATAR Spice Blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 (11.75 oz.) package Pita Pockets (4 whole pitas)


  • Cook the onion in the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat for 4 minutes or until translucent; add the lamb or ground beef and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, for 5 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Drain any fat from the pan. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, ZA’ATAR, red pepper flakes, and salt; mix to combine. Cool slightly.

To make the Twisted Caesar Greek Salad:

  • Place the two Fresh Express® Twisted Caesar Greek Chopped Salad Kits into a large bowl; toss with the salad dressing. Add the toppings and toss to combine.

To assemble:

  • Split each pita in half. Fill with 1/4 cup meat and 1/2 cup salad; arrange cucumber slices around the sides of the pita. Top with a few additional crumbles of meat. Serve with Twisted Greek Salad on the side.
