1 large egg
2/3 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, chopped and devided
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
6 ounces low fat plain yogurt
4 cups Boston lettuce, sliced or shredded

Cut off 1/3 piece of each pita and grate on fine side of grater or pulse in food processor to make 1/2 cup bread crumbs.
