  • Summary

    This is a fantastic vegetarian lunch for the school week. The protein from the cheese and beans are the perfect satisfaction. Also, you can make the black bean salad the night before and let all the flavors mix together (just hold the avocado until actually making the pita pocket so it doesn’t get too brown). This salad lasts for a few days. I like my sandwich toasted in the oven when I’m at home. If eating the sandwich at school or work, it tastes delicious at room temperature, too! Using pita bread is key for this sandwich because it holds all the ingredients together like a purse ????
