Directions:

  1. To make the filling, place the salad greens or lettuce, mushrooms, carrot, red pepper, and cheese in a large bowl, and toss to mix well. Set aside.
  2. To heat the pita pockets, place them on a microwave-safe plate. Cover with a damp paper towel, and microwave on high power for about 45 seconds, or until warm.
  3. Stuff each pita half with some of the salad mixture. Drizzle 1 1/2 teaspoons of dressing over the filling in each pocket, and serve.
