When I was a kid, I loved eating Gyros in this corner hole-in-the-wall restaurant in my home-town La Paz, Bolivia. Of course, these were authentic lamb gyros - but they were so foreign, it was fascinating. I’ve taken a slight twist and created a recipe that is quick to prepare but maintains a Mediterranean essence. Given these can be incredibly easy to prepare, I’ve included this super simple Tzatziki sauce recipe for your enjoyment. Once again, use this as a guideline and add anything else your heart desires. Cheers!
Quick Home-made Tzatziki sauce
Makes 4 servings or 1 cup. 2 tablespoons is 1 serving. Can also be used with any beef recipe or chicken recipe you desire, and will last up to 1 week in the fridge.
1 cup 2% Greek Yogurt, ½ cup diced cucumbers, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 1 lime zested and juiced, 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, 1 teaspoon fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dry dill. Pinch of salt.
Note: The pockets will be full with all the filling. The pitas may slightly break if overstuffed. Feel free to slightly toast the pitas before hand for a crunchier texture.
