Mediterranean Turkey Pita

There are certain recipes I love making in the summer. They are perfect ways to use those delicious garden vegetables! This is one is great for spinach, cucumber, and tomatoes. It's a nice light meal that doesn't need the oven on. Who wants an oven heating up the house on a hot summer day anyway?!

 Mediterranean Turkey Pita
1 lb ground turkey
1 1/2t. dried oregano
1 1/2t. garlic salt 
1 2/3c. ranch dressing
1 3/4c. peeled and copped cucumber
pita bread (or naan)
cherry tomatoes, halved
crumbled feta cheese

1. Brown turkey in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook until no longer pink and drain off fat. Add oregano and garlic salt to meat and mix. 
2. In a small bowl, mix chopped cucumber and ranch dressing. 
3. If desired, in a fry pan place a small amount of olive oil and about 1/4t. garlic powder. Lightly brown the pita on both sides (or naan if using that). 
4. Top each pita with turkey, ranch/cucumber mixture, spinach, tomato, and feta cheese. 


  1. My mouth is literally watering right now. That looks so delicious!:)

  2. WOW that is a mouth-watering sandwich. I love anything involving spinach, tomatoes and cucumbers. And I love all Mediterranean food. I will make this, tonight for dinner. Seriously. =)

  3. Yum, this looks delish! I think I might switch it up and add tzatziki sauce and pretend I'm in Greece!
