For National Nutrition Month, why not try a healthy spin on a classic “junk food” dish, nachos? This Mediterranean version is packed to the brim with veggies and flavorful herbs, plus it uses whole wheat pitas rather than fried corn chips as a base. This recipe comes to us from Brynn of The Domestic Dietitian.

Serves 4

  • 3 whole wheat pitas, cut into triangles
  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium cucumber, diced
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced

  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup hummus
  • 1/4 cup tzatziki
  • 1-2 tbsp kalamata olives, chopped
  • fresh dill, chopped (for garnish)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lay cut pita triangles on sheet pan in a single layer.
Drizzle lightly with olive oil and bake for 6-8 minutes, until crispy.
Layer baked pita chips on platter.
Top with hummus, tzatziki, cucumber, tomato, and onion.
Top with fresh squeezed lemon juice.
