Cucumber Pita Sandwich – Cheap Packed School Lunch Idea

Pita bread is fun to use for school lunches. Kids love the pocket. These can also be made on regular bread.

1 piece pita bread, sliced in half and opened
2 tablespoons hummus
6 slices cucumber
2 tablespoons alfalfa sprouts
1 tomato, sliced
handful spinach leaves
1 ounce pepperoncini, sliced (optional, will your kid eat them? Pickles may be an alternative.)
1/2 avocado, sliced

Spread hummus on each side of the pita. Arrange vegetables in the sandwich. If serving immediately, oil and vinegar or a vinaigrette salad dressing may go well, but can make the sandwich too wet to package as a school lunch.
