Cook's Tips: To make Grilled Pita Wedges, heat Grill Pan over medium heat 5 minutes. Spray one side of three (6-in./15-cm) flat pita bread rounds (without pockets) with vegetable oil using Kitchen Spritzer. Place one pita into pan, oil side down. Cook 1 minute per side or until grill marks appear; set aside and keep warm. Repeat with remaining pitas. Cut each pita into eight wedges.

To toast almonds, place almonds in Large Micro-Cooker®. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 2–3 minutes or until toasted, stirring every 30 seconds.
