Greek Salad Pitas

30 minutes or fewer        To pack this for lunch, wrap the pita pockets separately, and fill them with the salad just before serving. Or enjoy the chopped salad on its own with a bowl of soup for dinner. Note: Pepperoncini are thin, small pickled chile peppers that range in spiciness from medium to medium-hot. Look for them in the Italian section of large supermarkets.
