2 1/2 T. extra virgin olive oil (Greek or Italian) 1 T. fresh lemon juice (Meyer lemon is nice) 1 t, red wine vinegar 1/2 t. dried oregano or 1 T. fresh chopped oregano Salt and freshly ground pepper
Cut the pita in half, pack in paper towels and microwave for 40 seconds, open the pockets, set aside. Mix the vinegar, oil, lemon juice, oregano and salt and pepper in a small bowl, blend well.
