Gyros - A Quick Lunch Or Dinner

Continuing on with my yogurt theme this week, I'm going to share a recipe for gyros, a classic Greek sandwich.  This sandwich makes a nice lunch or dinner especially paired with a Greek salad.  The sauce is made with Greek or regular plain yogurt, cucumber and dill.  Lamb or beef is the traditional meat used and I have cheated a bit by using Boar's Head Seasoned Roast Beef, sliced thin.

4 pieces pita bread cut in half
1 lb. deli roast beef
chopped lettuce
thinly sliced or chopped tomatoes
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 small cucumber chopped
2 tsp. dill
2 tsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. feta cheese.
Combine the yogurt, cucumber, dill, lemon juice and feta in a medium bowl and mix well.  Toast or heat pita bread.  Divide the roast beef among the pita halves, add lettuce and tomato.  Top each with a spoonful of the sauce.

Greek Salad
fresh lettuce
sliced red onion
black olives
chopped tomato
sliced cucumber
feta cheese
Combine the above ingredients in a bowl in the amount you need.  Make a dressing of the following.
6 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. oregano
pepper to taste
juice of one lemon
Whisk ingredients together and pour over salad.  Toss well to coat.

This meal would be great in the summer when you don't want to heat up the kitchen.  I am excited to announce that Kroger's is now carrying Boar's Head products.  If you haven't tried their deli meats and cheeses, you are in for a treat.  Boar's Head has several unique flavors but leaves out the chemical crap we don't need.
