Greek Salad Sandwich

salad sandwich

I grew up on Greek food, and eat it or incorporate the flavors almost on a daily basis.  I enjoy almost all Greek food, and especially enjoy Greek sandwiches.  My favorite has to be the gyro, with one caveat, I prefer it without the meat.  I have always ordered them this way.   I just happen to be a salad girl and love the fresh flavors of raw salad vegetables.  Similar to the vegetarian gyros I have always enjoyed, this sandwich is basically a salad on pita bread topped with feta cheese and tzatziki.  It is wonderfully simple and healthy, and is a delicious combination of Greek flavors and textures.  Don’t let this sandwich fool you, with the Greek yogurt in the tzatziki and the feta cheese, it packs a protein punch.  I hope you enjoy this vegetarian play on gyros as much as I do.

 

Greek Salad Sandwich

4 wraps

Ingredients

  • 4 individual pita breads (preferably Greek or Mediterranean)
  • olive oil for heating pita bread (I use extra virgin)
  • 3.5 oz. mixed baby salad greens
  • 1 small sweet onion
  • 3 Roma tomatoes
  • 3/4 garden cucumber
  • 4 oz feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup tzatziki
  • salt, and oregano to taste
  • aluminum foil to wrap sandwiches
  • Chop the lettuce and all other vegetables. Crumble the feta cheese and set aside.
  • Heat a little oil in the pan. Place the pita bread in the pan gently putting oil on both sides and heat until warmed and slightly golden on both sides. You don't want the pita bread to get crunchy, and it should still be bendable. Cut a piece of aluminum foil larger than the pita bread and place the pita bread on the foil. Repeat with the other pitas.
  • Evenly top the pita with lettuce and all the veggies, and the feta cheese. Sprinkle a little salt and oregano over the sandwich. Place a little tzatziki down the middle of the sandwich (not too much).
  • Fold up the sandwich like a hard shell taco and take one side of the foil and place it over the folded top. Then place the other side of the foil over the other side, closing the sandwich within the foil. Close up one end of the sandwich with the foil. Slightly rip off the foil on the other end of the sandwich exposing one end of the sandwich. This will hold it together while you eat it. Peel back the foil as you eat. Enjoy!

      I love the idea of a gyro without meat, it sounds totally refreshing for a hot summer day! Not to mention with the delicious homemade tzatziki recipe you shared earlier 🙂
