|Bored with the same old sandwich at lunch? Liven up packed lunches with this Thai-influenced pita pocket: a surprising blend of fruits, spinach and peanut sauce tucked in a very portable pita pocket.|
|Recipe Cost for 4 People: $8.02 ($2.01/serving)*|
|Preparation Time: 15 minutes|
|In a colander over a bowl, drain fruit salad well; reserve 3 Tbsp juice. In a small bowl, whisk together reserved juice, peanut butter, cream cheese and soy sauce. Place drained fruit, spinach and cilantro (if desired) in bowl, mix gently. Add sauce and toss. Slice a small portion off each pita and tuck sliver inside at the bottom. Fill each pita pocket with the fruit-spinach mixture. Wrap individually in plastic wrap and refrigerate. Will keep well overnight.
Time-saving idea: Purchase pre-opened pita pockets.
