NO Cook Chicken Caprese Pitas

Is it just me or is cooking in the summertime just too much to ask?
Maybe it's just me.

But if it's's a simple and yummy no
cook meal with all the food groups!

Rotisserie or baked chicken from the deli, diced or shredded: Meat group, check!
Lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber diced: Veggie group, check!
Diced mozzarella cheese: Dairy group, check!
Pita bread pockets (whole wheat if you can find 'em!):
Bread/Grain group, check, check, check!

Cut up some fresh basil, add it all to your pita pocket...
swirl a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar together and drizzle it on...
and you've got yourself a cool, no cook
chicken caprese pita for your summertime dinner enjoyment.

Okay, so cucumbers may not really go with caprese...
but they were yummy and cool you can leave 'em out if you want. :)

These were so good I'm thinking I need to make them again real soon!

How about you...
do you avoid cooking in the summertime?
Or all the time :)

Have a spectacular weekend!

  5. You had me at no cook :) It is so muggy today and these pitas look like the answer for dinner! Caprese anything is the way to go. I actually just made a caprese tortellini salad and it was perfect for a hot summer day. Can't wait to try this version!
