Super Easy Snack From an Almost Empty Fridge

Yesterday I came home from a long day of running errands absolutely famished!  Unfortunately, like Old Mother Hubbard, my cupboard was bare.  I was able to scrounge up a tomato from the Farmer's Market and one last piece of pita bread....not too appetizing.  But in 5 minutes, and with the help of my basil plant, I was able to turn my scraps into a delicious snack! Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 large tomato
  • 6-7 basil leaves
  • 1 pita
  • Good olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • salt & pepper
Toast the pita bread.  While toasting, slice up the tomato into chunks and put into a small bowl.  Drizzle tomato with olive oil and add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.  Chiffoned the basil and add to the bowl.  Tear the toasted pita into strips and add to the bowl.  Stir to combine; add more olive oil if necessary.
