Turkey Gyros Recipe

Turkey Gyros Recipe

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 sometimes prefer cheddar or Monterey Jack. —Donna Garvin, Glens Falls, NY

"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."
