Fresh Veggie Pita Pocket

Scott Anderson


This fresh sandwich is a delicious way to enjoy farm fresh natural ingredients. The ingredients can be changed to match you own personal flavor along with utilizing different dressings or vinaigrettes. I tend to like a little heat so that too can be adjusted by adding in more or less chili sauce.

I like the creamy snap of the goat cheese mirrored with the crispness of the fresh vegetables. You can mix the vegetables up at least 2-3 hours before the sandwiches are made, and more and you run the risk of the vegetables getting too mushy. Don’t build the sandwich until you are ready to serve or the pita will get soggy too.
