  • 1-1/2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup poppy seed salad dressing
  • 6 pita pocket halves
  • Leaf lettuce, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, grapes, cucumber, almonds and mozzarella cheese. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Line pita breads with lettuce if desired; fill with chicken salad.
