Turkey Gyros Recipe
Greek seasoning, feta cheese and dill-cucumber sauce make this gyro taste deliciously authentic. "This was my family's introduction to how really good pita bread can be," relates Donna Garvin of Glens Falls, New York. "instead of feta cheese, they sometimes prefer cheddar or Monterey Jack."
- 1 medium cucumber, peeled
- 2/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 teaspoons dill weed
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/2 pound turkey breast tenderloin, cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt-free Greek seasoning
- 8 thin tomato slices
- 4 pita breads (6 inches), warmed
- 1-1/2 cups shredded lettuce
- 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
- Finely chop one-third of the cucumber; place in a small bowl. Toss with sour cream, onion, dill and lemon juice. Thinly slice remaining cucumber.
- In a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey; cook and stir 5-7 minutes or until no longer pink. Sprinkle with Greek seasoning.
- Serve turkey, tomato and sliced cucumber on pita breads. Top with lettuce, cheese and sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
