This is truly one of the best things you’ll ever eat.

It’s made at a small diner-style restaurant in St Petersburg, Florida, called The Kopper Kitchen.  My family has been going there for decades.  And we’ve been ordering this pita sandwich that entire time.  Some people (yours truly) omit the onions, others remove the tomatoes and grill the onions, everyone makes a mess while eating it.  And don’t tell Owner Fred, but I’ve made it in a frying pan, and it worked.


1 pita bread

3 Tbl feta cheese

2 tomato slices

bean sprouts

onion, sliced and grilled

Thousand Island salad dressing



The grilled feta is prepared on a griddle at low heat. Do not use a frying pan. Cut pita bread in half to form two pockets. Spread dressing inside bread. Place cheese inside bread. Layer tomato, sprouts and onions on cheese. Place sandwich on griddle and heat both sides until cheese is melted and bread is toasted.


For the Thousand Island Dressing:

2 cups mayonnaise

½ medium onion

½ green pepper, pureed

1 ½ tsp. garlic, pureed

¾ cup sweet relish

½ cup catsup


Combine all ingredients. Mix well with a wire whisk. Makes three cups.
