Falafel Pitas

My sister introduced our family to this delicious meal after returning from an extended stay in the Middle East. Falafel is made from chickpeas and makes a filling but light spring/summer meal. You can use whole grain pita bread or whole grain tortillas. I get cravings for this!

Falafel Mix
Shredded lettuce
Diced tomatoes, peppers, avocadoes, etc.
Pita bread (make sure the package specifies it is "pocket" pita bread. There is pocket-less pita bread and I've made the mistake!)
-Prepare Falafel Fritters according to box directions (you just add water then fry them in some olive oil). Instead of making falafel balls, I like to do small patties because it makes frying easier since you just have to flip them once.
-Stuff Pita bread with all your fresh veggies, falafel fritters, and top with yogurt sauce.

Yogurt Sauce (or you can use ranch)
1/2 large bolthouse cucumber, diced finely
1 cup plain yogurt
2 TBS olive oil
1 small garlic cloved, minced
2 TBS fresh dill (or 1/2-1 tsp dried)
