    Altered ingredient amounts. This was a refreshing change to most wrapped sandwiches I've tried. My recipe was scaled to 4 servings. Even though my pitta did fall apart (I always try to pack too much in), I really enjoyed these. My favourite part was the avocado. Delicious! In the future I plan on doubling the amount of salsa used to make it a little more saucey.  -  18 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. Yum! This makes a quick, tasty weeknight dinner. I added some sliced black olives.  -  18 Jul 2008


    Really, really good (and a PERFECT amount for two)! Changed one thing--instead of buying pre-made salsa, I cut up some tomatoes and onion and mixed in red pepper. SO good!  -  21 Oct 2013
