  1. Fill each pita half with 1/4 cup of the shrimp and, if desired, 1/2 ounce of the cheese.
  2. To heat the sandwiches, arrange them on a large microwave-safe plate, cover with damp paper towels, and microwave on high power for 2 minutes, or just until the sandwiches are heated through.
  3. Place some of the lettuce, 1 slice of tomato, and a few onion rings in each pita half. Drizzle some dressing over the filling, and serve.
