This easy Greek pita sandwich recipe is made with Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore in Water, a tangy lemon Greek yogurt sauce, cucumbers, tomatoes, and feta cheese. A simple weeknight dinner recipe!
This summer has been a whirlwind of activity, and as we head into the fall, I don’t see life slowing down any time soon.
Between weddings, holidays, and other events, the year is getting back into full swing. Kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter, and the end of summer is near. Granted, I love the fall, so I’m happy to see the arrival of cooler weather (we hope), warm drinks, and fuzzy socks, but, the busyness of the season can definitely make dinners difficult.
As much as I love to cook, I live for easy dinner recipes, and these Greek pita sandwiches totally fit the bill. They come together in just a few minutes and taste fantastic, because, well, bread. Pita bread is amazing. It’s so soft and fluffy and I just want to eat it all. I don’t, but I want to.
I’m trying to possess more self-control.
I’m a work in progress.
All right, so let’s break down this easy little sandwich for ya. Apart from the typical Greek-like ingredients of Greek yogurt, cucumber, tomato, and feta cheese, I used Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore in Water, which tastes incredibly fresh and has a great, firm texture. It really enhances the flavor of this dish and pairs extremely well with the other ingredients in this pita sandwich. Plus, it’s a lean protein and full of vitamins and minerals.
The Greek yogurt sauce is super easy to put together as well, as it is just Greek yogurt, lemon juice, a bit of dill, oregano, and salt & pepper. When mixed with the other ingredients, it adds a nice fresh zing to the dish and is complemented nicely by the soft pita bread.
It’s a winner!
