Tonight's Dinner: Chicken pita salad recipe
Pita chips are usually reserved for a midday snack either by themselves or dipped in some hummus. But if you add them to a salad, you not only get some great crunch, you get a filling dinner salad that's better than most.
Pita chips are a favorite midday snack for both me and my son. We love them by themselves but adore them when dipped in ranch or hummus, so when My Recipessuggested adding them to a salad, I knew it'd be a winner. I've had chicken salads before, but adding the chips gave the salad an awesome crunch and a wonderful flavor unlike any salad I'd had before. While my son wasn't into the baby spinach, he lapped up those chips and cheese with no problem whatsoever. With results like those, and warmer days around the corner, this is one salad I'll definitely make again.
