Kids who have learned to like salad will enjoy this fresh-tasting sandwich.

Use your child's favorite salad dressing for extra appeal. My younger son loves this sandwich with Thousand Island dressing. Increase quantities as needed for more sandwiches.

( Use the amounts given here as a guideline-there is no need to measure or to be exact.

Combine first three ingredients in medium bowl. Fill bowl nearly to the top with lettuce and toss. Add enough dressing to moisten and toss again. Fill warmed pita with salad mixture; wrap first in foil, then in plastic.
