Shred cucumber. Combine yogurt, mint, lime juice, 1/8 teaspoon salt, garlic, and cucumber in a small bowl, set aside.


Place chickpeas in a single layer on paper towels. Cover with additional paper towels; pat dry. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tsp oil to pan; swirl to coat.


In a medium bowl, combine remaining salt, chickpeas, cumin, paprika, and red pepper and toss well to coat.


In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, and black pepper, stirring well with a whisk. Add arugula; toss gently to coat.


Make the pita sandwiches! Fill each pita half with about 2/3 cup chickpea/arugula mixture, a couple tomato slices, and 2 tablespoons sauce.
