One summer I worked at a health food store that sold sandwiches. We were close to a college campus, so I made lots of these fresh filled pitas for the students. Crunchy with crisp vegetables and nutty sunflower kernels, they're a fast-to-fix lunch when you're on the go. -Linda Reeves, Cloverdale, Indiana

"Very good! One variation that I like to make is I whip a package of Neufch?tel cheese with fresh chives or onions, or other herbs. Then I mix the sunflower seeds into the whipped cheese right before serving."

"The cream cheese mixture was something different for me, and it was very good. I liked the combination of veggies given in the recipe, very colorful."
