Test: Little Italy Chicken Pitas with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette

We've been on an easy-dinner kick lately and these Little Italy Pitas from Cooking Light definitely fit the bill of being easy.  And you won't have to spend too much time in a hot kitchen, which these days is a huge plus with the heat wave we are having!  My favourite part of the pitas was the delicious sun-dried tomato vinaigrette.  This may become a go-to vinaigrette for salads in our house.  As expected, these pitas make a fantastic lunch option as well.
