“This sandwich was my favorite on the menu at a deli on Williamson Road in Roanoke, VA in the early 90's. I cannot remember the name of the place or what they called this sandwich. I don't know if it is still there or not, as I only lived there 2 years, but I still make it today. It was served with potato chips and a pickle. Sweet potato chips or potato salad are good, too. Do not let the list of ingredients scare you off. I have substituted others or omitted some when needed.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the shredded cheeses on (not inside) the pita bread in microwave. Do NOT use an oven or broiler, as you want the bread to remain soft.
  2. Add spinach and lettuce leaves (uncut).
  3. Add remained sliced veggies, oil and vinegar.
  4. Fold in half and serve.
  5. NOTE: Do not add salt, as the cheese adds a sense of saltiness.
