Pastrami, Tomato & Cucumber Pita Sandwich

Wrapped in the traditional Mediterranean flat bread, Nations Best® Pastrami lends a salty, smoky taste to this refreshing salad of lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and scallions. Nations Best® Turkey or Tongue work equally well.


  • 3 oz Nations Best® Bottom Round Pastrami, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/2 c torn tender lettuce
  • 1/3 c diced cucumber, in 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/3 c halved pear tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp chopped scallions
  • 1 Tbsp coarsely-chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 Tbsp ranch dressing
  • Salt & freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 pita bread, warmed if desired


  1. Toss the pastrami, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, scallions, basil, and dressing together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Cut the top 1-inch off the pita and fill it with the pastrami mixture.
