Easy Greek Pita Sandwich Recipe


Description

These easy Greek pita sandwich recipe takes just a few minutes to prep and uses meatballs as a simple shortcut!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb. beef meatballs (plain, Italian is fine)
  • 1/2 english (or hot house) cucumber
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (8 oz)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon + 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 4 pita breads

Instructions

  1. Bake meatballs according to package instructions. Note: some have a quicker cook time if they are thawed, so determine if you need to save the time and plan ahead.
  2. Make tzatziki:
    Grate 1/2 cup of cucumber with box grater.
    Grate 1 clove of garlic with zester or mince as finely as possible.
    Stir together cucumber, yogurt, grated garlic, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of dried dill. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until serving.
  3. Assemble pitas: top pita bread with meatballs and tzatziki sauce. Serve salad on the side.


Notes

  • You can warm the pita in the microwave (about 30 seconds) or in a hot oven or grill.
  • Garlic: you can also use 1/2 tsp garlic powder in the tzatziki instead of fresh garlic.
  • Regular cucumber is fine to use, but will need to be peeled.
