Greek chicken gyro salad
Greece is full of amazing and delicious foods that have since made their mark across the world, but there’s no doubt about the fact that the gyro is perhaps the most famous dish to come from the country. Of course, some people don’t like to fill their stomach with bread, fries, and other carbohydrates. If you’re one of them but still want to taste the typical gyro flavors, then this Greek chicken gyro salad should be right up your street. One of the best things about this recipe is that you can tailor it to your own taste. While you will need chicken, tzatziki, cucumber, and tomatoes, the rest is up to you. Fill it with as many vegetables as you want.
Turkey burgers with tzatziki sauce
Everyone loves a burger every now and then, right? Although you could head to the nearest fast food joint, they won’t be quite as healthy as those you could make yourself. Turkey burgers are a great alternative to beef burgers, as red meat is normally limited on a Meditteranean diet. However, that doesn’t mean they are any less tasty. By placing ground turkey and herbs of your choice in a bowl and patting them down to make turkey patties, you can then cook these burgers and top them with anything you want. Of course, no turkey would be complete without tzatziki.
Are you looking to cook up a storm of the Mediterranean diet? These simple recipes will definitely work in your favor and leave you feeling full – but still wanting more.
