Good Morning!!! This week Tasty Tuesday is brought to you by Cooking Light. (Check it out, they usually have free 2 month trial!!) This is one of my favorite magazines. Every month I read it 2-3 times cause there always seems to be things I miss. In honor of summer, I have a another salad to try. It's perfect for cookouts!

Any salad that includes a carb like pita bread is a winner in my book!
