Equipment

  • Blender or food processor

Instructions 

Green Goddess Dressing.

  • Place all of the ingredients for the dressing into a blender or food processor and process until you have a smooth texture. Give it a taste and adjust the flavor as you see fit. (Normally I add more garlic to my recipes, but the garlic will really settle in as this dressing sits and can become overpowering if too much is used.)

Pita.

  • Slather about two tablespoons of the dressing over each pita, then divide the rest of the ingredients up and top your pita with them (mixed greens, sprouts, avocado slices, cucumber slices, sardines.) If you're preparing this in advance and are toting it somewhere, like the office, securely wrap the pita with tin foil or parchment paper and set it into a container with a lid. Otherwise, fold it up and devour it.
