Gyros for Heros.

Believe it or not we found a Gyro kit in the grocery store. It comes with pita bread, meat and Tzatziki sauce. Cool huh? Well the meat was seasoned nicely and there is nothing bad about a warm piece of pita bread. But the sauce, not the best. Next time I would make my own. So …
Here is a good recipe for tdziki sauce the next time we want gyros, and by the way the Greeks say “ero” like the G is silent.

Tzatziki Sauce Ingredients

• 2 (8 ounce) containers plain yogurt
• 2 cucumbers - peeled, seeded and diced
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1/2 lemon, juiced
• salt and pepper to taste
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
• 3 cloves garlic, peeled

Directions

In a food processor or blender, combine yogurt, cucumber, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, dill and garlic. Process until well-combined. Transfer to a separate dish, cover and refrigerate for at least one hour for best flavor.
To make the sandwich, take a warm pita, top with thin strips of beef, top with cooled sauce and shredded lettuce, grilled onion and tomatoes.
