  • Summary

    This red and green salsa combines roasted zucchini, creamy avocado, juicy pomegranate seeds, and pungent feta cheese. The avocado is a source of good fat, as is the olive oil used to coat the zucchini. Chips are cut from whole-wheat pitas, and then toasted.

    Ingredients

    • 2 zucchini (about 1 pound), trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch dice (about 3 1/2 cups)
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
    • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
    • 1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/4-inch dice (about 1 cup)
    • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
    • 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    • 3 whole-wheat pitas (6 inches each)
    • Olive-oil, cooking spray
