      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      To tote for lunches, place single-serving portions of pork strips, pita bread, bell pepper strips, sliced onion, arugula and pepitas each in individual resealable plastic bags. Transfer 2-tablespoon portions of hummus to two airtight containers. Place in an insulated cooler with ice pack or chill all ingredients except for pita bread and pepitas until assembly.
