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! You can also use this delicious California Avocado lime ranch dressing recipe as dip, on salads or spread on sandwiches.
