Shredded Chicken Pitas with Sun-dried Tomato Vinaigrette

I snagged this recipe from Celeste’s blog, Sugar and Spice, and these little pitas were so, so delicious.

They made for a light but very fulfilling dinner. This would be perfect to serve to company because it is unique and more than just an ordinary stuffed pita.

The balsamic and sun-dried tomato vinaigrette is tangy but not overwhelming and the lettuce and tomatoes add a great, fresh touch. We loved this – thanks Celeste!
