How to Make It

 -FOR THE TZATZIKI-

1. Meanwhile, in a small bowl add greek yogurt, chopped cucumber, grated red onion, chopped fresh mint, chopped fresh dill, the juice from half lemon, 1 tbsp olive oil and salt. If the sauce is too thick, add 1/2 tbsp of water at a time until desired thinness is reached.

-FOR THE TABBOULEH-

1. Add bulgur wheat, scallions, parsley, mint, tomato, cucumber, olive oil and lemon juice (starting with half a lemon) to a small bowl and mix.

Salt to taste. FYI: The flavor will get better as it sits so be sure to let it rest for at least 30 minutes before serving. 

-FOR THE SANDWICH-

1. Heat the pita until it's soft and pliable. Add tzatziki to the center and top with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red onion, tabbouleh, feta cheese, mint, parsley, and dill. Serve immediately.
