will make the pitta open as it can be difficult to slice them. Leave aside to cool down.

Cut the top and bottom of the tomato. Then slice it in 4 pieces. Wash out the pips and remove the moisture from the tomato by dabbing it with tissue paper. Tomato can be very wet and putting it in this sandwich without removing the moisture will make the pitta very soggy. So, set the tomato aside.

Now rinse the lettuce leaves and flick out the water to keep it dry and cut away the white bottom bit.

Open the tuna, drain, pour in a bowl. Add black pepper, garlic and 1 full table spoon of mayonnaise. Combing and spoon in a small jar.

Now, partially put your sandwich together: Open the pitta pocket now cold, place in them the salad leaves, one in each and 1 slice of tomato. Place all of them in the lunch container with the tuna mix kept separately. At lunch time all you will have to do is add the tuna filling. It will take 2 minutes.
