Green Goddess Pita’s with Basil Jalapeno Dressing

You Know what makes boring dishes good…….? Dressings/Sauces! Seriously what takes sweet potato fries to the next level…. BBQ sauce, Salads…. cottage cheese (my favorite healthier alternative) or ranch. So lets make an amazing go-to healthier dressing that you can add to salads, pitas, wraps, or even a sandwich. It’s so versatile and brings so much flavor to our basic meals.

We love pitas around here. Top them with sauce, chicken, turkey pepperoni, and cheese for the perfect personal pizza. Cut them in half and stuff those pockets with chicken, avocado, lettuce, and some basil jalapeno dressing for the perfect nutrient dense meal within 5 minutes.

Another addition to these pitas are grilled chicken. Grilled chicken is my favorite way to eat chicken, its quick, adds so much flavor, and reminds me of summer every time. Its also a great way to meal prep, as it keeps really well in the fridge for the week. Prepping your meat ahead of time is so convenient, I highly suggest doing this if you finding yourself eating out more than two times a week. Not only will it save you time, but also money. EATING OUT IS SO EXPENSIVE, and while it is convenient we can make a few adjustments one day a week to save you so much money.

I mixed it up by making chicken kabobs. I only added chicken but adding some onions, zucchini, and peppers would be amazing! Add to a bed of lettuce, then topped with this basil jalapeno dressing and you have a flavorful delicious salad in less than 10 minutes. HOLLLLLAAAAA
