Cobb Salad Stuffed Pita Pockets

Share:

I love pita pockets for quick meals on the go. They are so versatile, but one of my favorite ways to stuff them is with Cobb Salad fillings. Delicious California Avocados, hard boiled eggs, bacon, chicken and ham for protein, and tomatoes and lettuce for additional nutrients. Drizzle a little Creamy Avocado Ranch salad dressing on top and you have a filling and tasty meal you can grab and go!

Serves: 8

4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and diced
1 Roma tomato, diced
1 hard-boiled egg, diced
1 grilled chicken breast, diced
1 cup diced cooked ham
1/4 cup diced cooked bacon
4 pitas, halved
