Reviews for Egg Salad Pitas
"This is great. I substituted celery seed for the celery salt and used chopped celery instead of the bacon. The carrot and the celery gave it great crunch. Used whole wheat pita bread. Very tasty and will make again."
"Quick, Easy, Healthy, Delicious! I added a few touches of my own like using Turkey bacon, bell peppers instead of carrots, and adding more mustard less mayo. It turned out fantastic! :)"
