This was my dinner tonight, and it was fast, delicious and super filling. All of the items I used were Trader Joe's brands, and so calorie, fat and fiber counts may differ if you use different items. If you do have a Trader Joe's near you all the ingredients are available there pre-prepared (cooked salmon is in the meat case), and so it took about 5 minutes in the kitchen to assemble. You could also do this with cooked chicken or lamb; I think either would be really yummy.
3 oz. poached salmon
1 1/4 c. broccoli slaw (can purchase this bagged, undressed, in the produce section)
1/4 c. sliced green onions
6 T. tzatziki sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
6-inch whole wheat pita bread (I used "Pocketful of Fiber")
Mix salmon, broccoli slaw and green onions with tzatziki in a bowl until well-coated. Mix in salt and pepper to taste. Slice pita in half and stuff with salmon/slaw mixture.
