Greek Chick Pea Pita Filling and Yogurt Sauce

This is a vegetarian stuffing for pita bread. It would also be delicious on a roll, bun, or sandwich. You could even enjoy it as a side salad, but a pita is more fun. For those who just have to have meat with their meal, grilled chicken is especially good for this. Just chop it into bite-sized piece and combine with the chick pea stuffing.
