This pita sandwich makes a perfect lunch or try it for a light evening meal.

Instructions

Tip to pit avocado:
Hold avocado in hand. Slice in half lengthwise circling knife around pit. Use both hands to make a half turn and separate avocado from pit. Carefully scoop pit out with large spoon.

Using a large spoon, scoop the avocado half away from the skin, keeping half in tact. Slice avocado into thin pieces, lengthwise. Peel jicama and slice into 1” thin pieces. Combine ranch dressing and salsa in small bowl to make a sauce. Cut pita in half and spread 2 tablespoons sauce on inside of each pita half. Layer equal amounts of avocado, tomato slices, jicama and corn into pita half. Top pita with 1 tablespoon of sliced olives. Serve for lunch with a cup of skim milk and cantaloupe wedge.

Each serving provides:  An excellent source of vitamins A and C, folate, calcium, potassium and fiber, and a good source of magnesium.
