Crunchy & Cool

Crunchy & Cool.

This is precisely how I’m liking my foods lately. It’s probably related to the seasonal change. Or it’s just that there are more fruit/veggie options available. But why overanalyze, right? I’m just going with it.

For example, I’ve been enjoying all types of salads – topped with grilled chicken, cucumber & tomato, multi-bean and even the simple garden salads. Pretty much a deee-li-cious variety every day for lunch or dinner.

A twist on the salad that I recently turned into my meal was the Beef Gyro with lots o veggies. Plenty of crunchy and cool in this one.


The Ingredients:

  • 1 lb beef flank steak, seasoned & grilled & cut into short thin strips (like fajita meat)
  • 1 Cucumber, deseeded and chopped into small cubes
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes, deseeded and chopped into small cubes
  • 1 Vidalia onion, coarsely chopped
  • TzaTziki Sauce – either pick up your favorite brand at home or you can mix one up
  • 6 Pita or Flatbreads


Assembling the Gyro: You really don’t need to be highly skilled to put this one together. All it takes is:

  1. Take your pita or flatbread & add 2-4 pieces of beef flank
  2. Generously top with cucumber, tomatoes and Vidalia onion to taste. More = Crunchier
  3. Add a dollop of your Tzatziki sauce in the center
  4. Fold & Eat (this is the best part) J


 Even though I pile in the veggies, I still like some sort of side salad with my gyro. It goes really well with either a bean or tomato/cucumber salad..and both are great for dipping in a little extra Tzatziki. Yum yum.

This recipe is quick, fresh..and let’s not forget….Crunchy & Cool. Enjoy!

Have you been craving different types of foods lately?

    I have been actually craving Greek salads like it is my job. I never crave a big old salad but lately I most certainly have.
