My Big Fat Greek Tacos


Ran out of red wine vinegar, so used a combo of Balsamic & apple cider vinegar for the tomato relish. Still yummy!


Cucumber Tomato Relish:
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 firm tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 English cucumber, seeded and diced
½ red onion, diced
Freshly ground black pepper
Feta Mint Tzatziki:
1 English cucumber
1 cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt
½ cup crumbled feta cheese plus extra ½ cup or so for serving
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
2 tablespoons minced fresh mint
Lamb or Turkey:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1½ pounds ground lamb, beef or turkey
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ red onion, minced
2 teaspoon dried oregano
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoon tomato paste
4 tablespoons dry red wine or cooking wine or red wine vinegar
For the pitas:
4-6 non-pocket Greek pitas
Cook's note: This is not necessary for yummy, impressive flavor, BUT if you happen to have a little Za'atar seasoning, add 1-2 teaspoons to the oregano when cooking the meat mixture. It will add just that much more out-of-this-world Greek gyro flavor. I have made it without and had huge success.
