These pitas are a light, refreshing lunch—perfect for a hot summer day. I like to pre-make the cucumber salad and quickly assemble it at the office or on a picnic with my girls. To keep it simple, buy your favorite pre-made hummus. I like to keep different kinds of hummus in the fridge. My girls enjoy a sun-dried tomato, but I love the heat of the spicy avocado flavor. Whatever you choose, these pita pockets are quick, easy, and full of plant-based nutrients!
