Avocado, cheese and veggie filled pita pockets, no cooking required ! Prepare this recipe as is, or you can substitute any cheese or raw veggie combination you happen to have. Original recipe came from the Los Angeles Times. I sometimes add green or black olives to the mixture and dress with homemade creamy garlic dressing in place of the bottled Italian.

- 1⁄2 cup monterey jack cheese, cubed
