Oh man I am Love Greek flavors. Betas. Gyros. Everything is cucumber, yogurt, and feta cheese.

Combine those Mediterranean flavors in a lettuce roll? brilliant.

This quick and easy Greek lettuce roll is a wonderful and so delicious night dinner, I can eat it every day for the rest of the time and have no regrets.

Yogurt sauce with mint and feta

All of the flavors in this lettuce roll are great, but it’s the mint and mint yogurt sauce that really steals the show.

Thankfully it is very easy to find fresh mint year-round. It just makes the clothes bounce with the character.

Creamy and tart, this yogurt sauce (thick enough to dip) can be prepared several days in advance.

Just be sure to leave some for dinner. It’s easy to keep indulging in these cool things. {Note: Whatever you do, don’t try dressing yogurt with warm pita triangles; Don’t, don’t.}

A quick little recipe

Since chopped turkey (or chopped chicken) is cooked in no time at all, the rest of the recipe comes together in a jiffy.

Although the somewhat boring nature of lean ground meat may make you yawn, in this case it gets a boost with some of the same flavors that go into the marinade:

  • garlic
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Lots of salt and pepper

The result is tender, flavorful flesh that works perfectly in lettuce rolls.

Lettuce Lettuce Roll

If you can find pip lettuce, it makes a really great lettuce roll.

But if that’s not available, Roman hearts, albeit taller and thinner, work great as well.

And if all else fails, you can chop up any variety of lettuce (or spinach or spring greens) and make a salad with these delicious, Mediterranean-inspired ingredients.

I also think you can ditch lettuce or Add to it Each portion of this recipe is presented in a file A crazy piece of warm flat bread. Oh my heart. Yum.

Greek lettuce wraps! Not fancy. Not shmancy. Just super fast. Super health. And super delicious.
