Simply Organic Greek Grilled Pitas with Olive Tapenade Recipe Prep

  2. Pulse until pureed. With the motor running, slowly add olive oil.
  3. Scrape bowl and process again, adding a bit more oil if needed to create a spreadable paste.

To grill the pitas:

  1. Brush both sides of pita with olive oil.
  2. Grill 1 minute and rotate halfway to make crisscross marks. Grill 1 more minute, turn over and repeat on the other side.

To top the pitas:

  2. Top with feta cheese, then tomatoes, arugula and green onions.
  3. Sprinkle with oregano and red pepper, if desired.
