How To Make garden pita-pocket sandwiches

  • 1
    Cook the bacon medium well. Drain on paper towel and allow to cool enough to handle. Crumble into small pieces, and set aside.
  • 2
    Prepare the veggies, and put everything into a large mixing bowl. Add crumbled bacon.
  • 3
    Using a fork, toss lightly with mayo until well combined.
  • 4
    Cut each pita circle into half-moons and open gently. Place a leaf of lettuce, if you like, and a slice of cheese in each pocket, then fill with 3-4 tablespoons of the veggie mixture.

    Best served immediately, at room temp. If necessary to delay serving I recommend mixing and filling at the last minute.

    NOTE: * Great way to use left over zucchini noodles * Switch it up with grape tomatoes, mixed red/yellow/purple cherry tomatoes, or chopped sun dried * We've tried using other cheeses, but the Jack really is "IT"! * You may be tempted to substitute ingredients, but I don't recommend it -- there's something about *this* combination that just sings. Enjoy :)
