Roasted Vegetable Pita Sandwiches with Tzatziki Sauce – a quick and healthy lunch or dinner!
The beauty of this Roasted Vegetable Pita Sandwich is the flexibility. Just look in your vegetable drawer and use whatever veggies you have on hand. Toss the vegetables with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper and roast them in the oven. So easy… and so good!
Be sure to add a little feta cheese and tzatziki sauce to the sandwiches for that amazing Greek flavor! Tzatziki is a traditional Greek sauce or dip that’s made of yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, garlic, and fresh dill. It is a great dip for vegetables, pita bread, or crackers. You can also serve it with grilled meats, fish, gyros, or falafel. It’s so good on so many things. Whatever you do, don’t skip the tzatziki. We promise it’s super easy to make and it really takes the sandwich from good to great!
