Steps to Make It

 For the Tzatziki

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. 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. Gather the ingredients.
  2. 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.
