1. To make the simple lemon vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients. This can be done in advance but used the day it is made. Be sure to re-whisk before each use.
2. Remove the chicken salad from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving.
3. Cut a ¼-inch strip off the longest side of each pita, creating a pocket. Carefully open the pita.
4. Place a couple of tablespoons of the chicken salad into the bottom of each pita. Layer 1 grape leaf, 1 tablespoon cucumber yogurt dip, some sliced red onion and a few pieces of lettuce on top. Drizzle with lemon vinaigrette and sprinkle with sea salt. Hot sauce optional!
5. Toss any remaining romaine lettuce and/or any other leaves you may have on hand (spinach and arugula are great, too!) with some lemon vinaigrette and distribute among the plates. Serve immediately.
6. Serve with additional tzatziki, pita chips and crisp vegetables if desired.

These are messy "fork and knife" sandwiches, so provide cutlery and lots of napkins!
