If you are looking for "authentic" gyro, this may disappoint. If you are looking for gyro flavors in a quick and healthy recipe, this is a keeper! I have two die-hard gyro fans in my house that were very skeptical about the use of turkey and sour cream in the recipe, but both gave this a thumbs up. I will definitely make again!I could not find salt free Greek seasoning, so just used regular Greek seasoning. The turkey tenderloins were only sold in 2 lb packages, so I subbed turkey breast cutlets, and cut the cooking time a bit. We also preferred more meat for 4 people than the 1/2 lb listed in recipe. I used about 3/4 lb per pound, and would use 3/4 - 1lb next time.

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.
