Break the salad leaves into slightly smaller pieces and place them in a dish with the cucumber, tomatoes, tuna, spring onions and olives. Season well with salt and pepper and a generous squirt of olive oil, then mix.

Heat a heavy-based frying pan and toast the pita breads on both sides. Alternatively, you can bake the pitas in a hot oven for a few minutes. Halve the pitas and cut a hollow in each. Fill it with a little mayonnaise (or a dressing of your choice: Bulgarian yoghurt mixed with a little lemon juice is delicious) and a generous scoop of salad. Warm mealies make an excellent accompaniment.
