These pockets sandwiches are so easy to make and easy to cart to work--different than typical sandwiches, which get to be boring after awhile. These are satisfying and tasty Mediterranean fare, as well as nutritious! I did substitute some Miracle Whip for the mayo to add a bit more "presence" to the dressing, but this is strictly personal taste and not necessary. Thanks Mitzi!
