Greek Wraps or Salad with Tzatziki Sauce

Some meals I just fall in love with the minute they first enter mouth. This recipe is one of those. So many great flavors and fresh ingredients all compliment each other perfectly. Great as a salad or layer in in a pita or tortilla to make a yummy wrap. Works well on the go or for a picnic dinner if you bring the sauce on the side to add before you are going to eat it.

      I LOVE greek food as well! It’s amazing. I made this recipe numerous time in a row – it’s that good and easy. I have company coming before Christmas for a few days and this might be making its way onto the menu.

    Hi Deanna! I’m stopping in from Let’s Get Real today. This recipe really does look amazing. I’ve been wanting to make my own Tzatziki sauce for a while. I’ll let you know how it turns out. I love it on everything. I’ve also been craving olives. I’m the only one in my family who likes them though. How crazy is that?!

      It is sooo good! I love Tzatziki sauce too. This is one of those meals that I don’t mind if other people don’t like because it means all the more for me. :-) I’ve eaten this every day for over a week before. My husband doesn’t like olives either (or feta cheese), but my daughter and I sure do! Thanks for stopping by – hope you like it.
