For convenience, I used sandwich thins. To cut down on sodium, I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. For extra flavor, I added Beau Monde. I think the sandwich thins were much better and easier than using pitas. It sounds like a lot of changes, but the recipe for the spread is a great base and I think it can be used with various meat and veggie sandwiches. I took it to a church gathering and had requests for the recipe.

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.

THIS ALSO IS GREAT WITH SANDWICH THINS INSTEAD OF PITA, AND A LOT EASIER TO WORK WITH.

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
