"Good sandwich; great spread. We put ours on Rye and Pump bread since the store didn't have any pitas. Still fantastic."

"I certainly would make this recipe again. However I would make some changes.

I felt that the cream cheese spread needs some additional spices. It seemed very bland and slightly over powering. I added chopped scallions and Black Pepper to it and I made it up well in advance so that the flavors could Mature. No taste of the dill weed at all. I think some Beau Monde would be a great addition and that would certainly compliment the Cream Cheese.
Love the presentation. Perfect sized appetizers."

"I made a platter of these little party pitas for my auxiliary luncheon snack and all the women came back for seconds and all wanted the recipe. I didn't have any spinach on hand so I substituted lettace leaves. Fast AND easty is my thing. Have a winner here. Thank you Taste of Home. Barb Stephens"
