Turkey Pitas with Greek Sauce
Number of Servings: 4
16 ounces of 93 percent lean ground turkey
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of dried parsley
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
1 cup of plain lowfat or nonfat yogurt
1/2 cup of cucumber, peeled and finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 ounce of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
1. In medium mixing bowl, mix turkey, cumin, dried parsley, oregano, and onion powder. Combine thoroughly and shape into eight patties, approximately 1/4 inch thick each.
2. In separate bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, garlic, lemon juice, and fresh parsley. Mix thoroughly and refrigerate until ready to use. This will be your 'Greek sauce.'
