Veggie Gyros

This is what we had for dinner last night.  These gyros are ridiculously simple and so tasty! 

6 oz. container plain Greek yogurt

1/2 large cucumber – peeled, seeded, and diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp. dried dill
1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp. pepper, or to taste
pita bread, 4 pieces
iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 medium tomato, sliced
8 oz. Italian herb feta, crumbled
1.  In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, lemon juice, dill, salt, and pepper.  Cover and chill.  I left mine in the fridge about an hour but it’s probably fine if you have less time.
2.  Heat the pita bread in the microwave (wrapped in damp paper towel – 20 seconds or so).
3.  Assemble the sandwiches:  On each pita, layer the lettuce, yogurt sauce, tomato slices, and feta.  Fold over, taco-style and serve.
Served with cold pasta salad on the side.
