This past week I made some Greek Gyros, With My Own Tzatziki Sauce

Greek Spice Mix (My Blend)

2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon basil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon rosemary

When marinating the meat sprinkle 1 tablespoon of spice mix over your meat, and then pour over 1 to 2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Tzatziki Sauce:

I always use my Juicer to get much of the water out of my cucumbers, then I let it drain out using a thin mesh screen. I also use a screen for my yogurt, I used a 32 ounce tub of Yogurt.

just mix the two together, and 1 tablespoon of my Greek Spice Mix to your Yogurt and cucumber mix (Tzatziki Sauce).

Turn your fry pan on cook the meat, remove

add Cooking 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil to your fry pan, add your Naan bread and move it around then flip and coat the other side with the oil. as the bread heats up keep an eye on it so it does not burn flipping a few times. The bread should be warmed thru

It's all done....

Now all you need to do is smear some of your Tzatziki sauce on the bread, add your meat, lettuce, diced tomatoes, Onions, some sliced black olives, Feta cheese, More Tzatziki sauce on top.

The reward is seeing my wife smile.

I know this is a little late, but I just found this wonderful site :) Just wanted to thank you for sharing the recipe for the Greek Spice Mix, and the recipes for the sauce and gyros. I can't wait to try this! I have a question for you salt your cukes when you are draining them to get more water out of them? I remember my mom doing this with eggplant when she made eggplant parm to get more water out, and I thought that this trick might work for cukes, too. Thanks, and your pics are great, love your blog.

I did not add salt because the way I did it removes most of the water, but salt does help. you just have to watch the salt in the finished product.
