Expert Tips

  • If desired, pat tomatoes dry, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste before adding to the pockets.
  • Even though these pockets are served cold, don’t skip the step of heating the pockets before filling. Microwaving the pockets before filling makes them more pliable and easier to work with.
  • To keep avocado from browning in the lunch box, gently coat avocado slices in lemon or lime juice before adding to the pockets.
  • Not a fan of cheese? No problem! These pockets are just as delicious without it.
