The BLT sandwich is the inspiration for this tangy salad. You can make the chicken salad ahead, and place it in pita halves just before serving.

4 servings (serving size: 2 stuffed pita halves)

  • 3/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled blue cheese (I used a bit more)
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1-1/2 cups  shredded cooked chicken (about 6 ounces)
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 4 (6-inch) whole wheat pitas, cut in half

Combine first 4 ingredients, stirring well. Combine lettuce, chicken, bacon, and tomatoes in a medium bowl, stirring well. Drizzle yogurt mixture over chicken mixture; toss gently to coat. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken salad into each pita half. Serve immediately.
