 Cobb Salad Stuffed Pita Pockets

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!

Ingredients

Serves: 8
cups  chopped romaine lettuce
  ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and diced
  Roma tomato, diced
  hard-boiled egg, diced
  grilled chicken breast, diced
cup  diced cooked ham
1/4  cup  diced cooked bacon
  pitas, halved
  Creamy Avocado Cilantro Ranch Dip (see make-ahead recipe below)
    Creamy Avocado Cilantro Ranch Dip
  ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded and peeled
cup  light sour cream
  jalapeño pepper, stem removed (feel free to remove the seeds if you don't like it spicy)
  lime, juiced (or more depending on your preference)
  green onion, diced

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
