Blue Cheese and Avocado Chicken Salad Pita

by Lauren


I just spent the day in fundraising school for my job (yes, I am indeed a fundraiser). Today’s discussion revolved around planned charitable giving (i.e. wills, bequests, trusts, etc.) and thus taxes, or avoiding them through giving to charities.

I’m brain dead. I can barely do my own taxes let alone understand the ridiculous IRS requirements for other people’s taxes.

Moral of the story: I could use some cheese about now. This pita sandwich, loaded with blue cheese and chicken, would suffice. Too bad I ate it three days ago and we are now fresh out of chicken and blue cheese.


But seriously, I could eat this again and again. It was sooo creamy but pretty darn healthy. I used plain yogurt, and I’m sure this will satisfy the mayo-haters like myself.

Mayo lovers, feel free to substitute. Did I just write mayo lover? Something is disturbingly wrong with that phrase.


Avocados are still ripe for the pickin’ by the way. Summer is not over yet! We actually just bought quite a few at 3 for $1 and are still trying to make our way through them all.

Avocado is a necessity on this sandwich. Chris dove in before I could slice one up and when I turned around to hand him a some, the sandwich was long gone.

I was sure to inform him of the atrocity he had committed.


Little Yellow Note: This chicken salad mixture would be perfection if you felt like adding some salty, crumbled bacon to it!

  1. I’m on a sandwich kick and lately have been making them for dinner so there aren’t many dishes to do (lazy, I know!). LOVE blue cheese and avocado, will be adding this into our rotation!

  2. This looks like a perfect pita! And the addition of some crumbled bacon. . .yum!

    I wish I would have had some on hand because bacon would have been killer!
