Tuna Pita Pockets

While clearing out the kitchen cupboards during our recent home detox, I found one lonely can of tuna. In the interest of following my own advice and using up what we have before making another shopping trip, I decided to put this can of tuna to good use.

When you go to a company's website, you can find tons of great ideas and recipes specifically designed for that product. In a matter of minutes I had over 50 tuna recipes to choose from and one was absolutely perfect. I had picked up some pita bread for hummus later in the week, so these tuna pita pockets hit the spot.

You'll need:
1 can tuna, drained and flaked
1/2 cup diced tomatoes (I used the ones with green chilies for extra flavor)
1/2 cup shredded carrot
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 pita bread
4-5 leaves of lettuce

1. Mix the tuna, tomatoes and carrot in a medium bowl. Season to taste. Drizzle olive oil over the mixture and stir until just moist.

2. Cut the pita in half to make two pockets. Layer the lettuce, half in each pocket.

3. Spoon in the tuna mixture. Serve with crackers, cheese and some fruit.
