SO DELICIOUS! My boyfriend raved over these sammys. They're so easy to make, too. I bought a small oven roasted turkey breast and shredded that, the first time I made it. The second time I used left over baked chicken breasts. Both times were phenomenal. I use a whole cucumber and shred it on a cheese grater. This is one of my favorite recipes from allrecipes.com. Thank you thank you thank you!

Good idea, but my turkey came out really dry. I probably won't make it again...

This is sooooo good. I didn't have plain yogurt, so I used 1 cup of low fat sour cream. I made my cucumber the way my Grandma made her cucumber salad. I pealed the cuke, sliced, then salted it and placed it in a bowl with a dish covering the slices. I then place a heavy object on the dish to press the cucumbers. You can leave it for an hour, or overnight in the refrigerator. This releases the juice and really brings out the flavor and crunch of the cucumbers. Since I'd already salted the cucumbers, I didn't add any more salt. This tasted just like a low fat version of Greek Gyros.

I used chicken breasts for this recipe and they were DELICIOUS! I would definitely make the Tzatziki sauce a day before and let it season in the fridge. A truly delicious recipe and a way to have healthy homemade gyros!!!

Excellent, easy and fresh. My husband actually made this as an alternative to the normal left-over thanksgiving turkey meals. I added some sliced black olives that were also leftover. I think a few sliced green onions would add a little zip. I loved the cucumber sauce! You could use low-fat sour cream to decrease the fat content. Overall, a very good, fresh taste. We served it with fresh greek, feta salad.

Its very hard to please my family when it comes to "New Recipe" night. Everyone loved this sandwich! When my son eats 4, that can tell you something. The cucumber sauce is very fresh tasting. We will be making this again.

Fantastic Recipe, we made it exactly as suggested and it was fantasic (a bit messy though) I served it with Feta Chunks and Cucumbers and Red Onions with a vinagrette.
