Gyros for Heros.
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
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.
