Vegetarian Greek Pita Sandwiches are so easy to make and require no cooking, which makes them perfect for easy weeknight dinners or quick lunches! Stuffed with tomatoes, onion, cucumber, and tangy, creamy tzatziki. Absolutely customizable, too!
Tzatziki: In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, oregano, dill, parsley, onion powder, and salt. Taste test for salt and herb levels then set aside.
Optional, but recommended: warm pita in microwave for 15-25 seconds.
Assemble each pita by layering cucumber slices, tomato slices, onion, and a spread of tzatziki sauce in each pita. Top with a generous pinch of dried oregano and feta cheese crumbles. Fresh parsley is also a great garnish.
Store leftover tzatziki sauce in an airtight container in the fridge (as well as any leftover veggies). Easily add more pita and veggies to make more sandwiches.
Original Recipe: This recipe was originally published in 2016 and had directions for slightly caramelizing the onions. It was updated in 2022 with the raw onion version, however, you can easily saute the onions - see next bullet.
Caramelized Onions: Heat 1 TBSP olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; add red onion slices and let sit without stirring for 3-4 minutes. Stir and continue to cook for an additional 2-4 minutes.
French Fries: add fries to make it like you'll find typically with Greek street food!
