  3. Serve warm with pita crisps, multi-grain, low fat crackers or breadsticks.
  4. For Baked Pita Crisps: Cut 2 whole wheat pita breads in half horizontally with scissors or serrated knife. Cut each half into 8 triangles. Arrange in single layer on cookie sheet; bake in 400°F (205°C) (205°C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Makes 16 appetizer servings.

Tips:

  • Substitute 2 tablespoons fresh minced dill for the dried and garnish with fresh dill sprigs.
  • For Tortilla Crisps: Substitute 4 small whole wheat flour tortillas for pitas.
