Greek seasoning, feta cheese and dill-cucumber sauce give this gyro an authentic taste. It was my family's introduction to how really good pita bread can be. Instead of feta cheese, we'll sprinkle on cheddar or Monterey Jack if we have it. —Donna Garvin, Glens Falls, New York

"I really like gyros and this was a good recipe. I couldn't find Greek seasoning, so I used a savory seasoning. I also had a hard time finding turkey tenderloin, so I used cooked turkey breast. It was still very good and I loved the cucumber sauce."
