California Dreamin’ Pita Pockets

Meet one of our favorite easy-to-pack lunch pitas.

Tip: To make this recipe dairy-free, skip the cheese and use hummus instead of yogurt and Ranch seasoning.

Fun Fact: Avocados are fruits (not vegetables) with a ton of vitamins, fiber, healthy fat, and even protein. That’s probably why some people call them “supercados.”

All You Need:

  • 3 tbsp. Hy-Vee plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. ranch seasoning mix
  • 2 pita pockets
  • 1 slice of Colby Jack cheese
  • 4 butter lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped avocado
  • 1 small tomato, seeded & chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, sliced

All You Do:

  1. In a small bowl, combine yogurt & seasoning mix.
  2. Spread into pita pockets.
  3. Stuff pitas with cheese, lettuce, avocado, tomato & cucumber.
  4. Top with remaining yogurt mix.
