It’s been a busy week here!   Even though it’s still summer I’ve had to go in to work several times in order to get things ready for next week which is the start of the school year.  I’ve also been busy cooking, canning, and trying to finish up one of my books.  It’s been a little hotter this week so I haven’t wanted to turn on the oven much.

I’ve also really been slacking on the whole lunch thing.  I just don’t feel like much.  However, since I’ve been getting a ton of veggies at the farmer’s market I’ve been pairing them with Sabra’s Tzatziki Dips.  Normally I make my own dip but these are so good that I don’t have to make mine from scratch.

Try all 4 delicious flavors of Sabra Tzatziki Dips!

Sabra Tzatziki Dip comes in four delicious flavors including Farmer’s Ranch, Spinach Parmesan, Classic Tzatziki, and Cucumber Dill.  My local Shoprite store carries all four varieties so I have tried them all!  My favorite for dipping vegetables is Farmer’s Ranch Tzatziki.  It’s made with Greek yogurt, cucumbers, carrots, and celery.   It’s perfect for dipping!

Sabra Tzatziki Dips are delicious when served with vegetables!

But these Tzatziki Dips aren’t just great for dipping.   I’ve used the Classic Tzatziki in my Lamb Pita Pockets instead of making my own sauce from scratch.  The Farmer’s Ranch Tzatziki is awesome in place of dressing on fresh summer salads.   I’ve even used the Tzatziki dip as a marinade!

I wanted to share my recipe for Tzatziki Marinated Chicken Gryos because they are just so good.   I like that I can throw the chicken in the marinade for an hour or overnight.  These are great for packing in lunchboxes for back to school or as a quick weeknight dinner.   Plus these gyros are filled with flavor and vegetables.

It's quick and easy to make these flavorful Tzatziki Marinated Chicken Gyros!

In order to marinate the chicken I simply put the Sabra Cucumber Dill Tzatziki in a bowl and thin it out with red wine vinegar and olive oil.  I pour the mixture over the chicken and refrigerate it.  Then I make the chopped cucumber onion salad that goes inside the gyro.   My cucumbers and tomatoes have been growing so well this year that I was able to use ones from my garden in this recipe.  I think that makes it taste even better.

When ready to serve all you need is a pita, the cooked chicken, cucumber onion salad, feta cheese, and more of the Cucumber Dill Tzatziki Dip.  I actually like to spread some of the Tzatziki on my pita and put some more on the side as a dip.   The gyro has a nice crunch from the veggies, the chicken is super moist, and the Tzatziki adds a nice flavor.  Overall it’s a great quick lunch or dinner recipe so give it a try!  Here’s a COUPON to try it for yourself!
