Method

  1. Peel the cucumber and remove any seeds. Dice into 1cm-cubes and leave to drain on a kitchen towel.
  2. Remove the meatballs from packaging and cook as guided from pack.
  3. Score the pitta breads to create an envelope effect and toast for one minute, on both sides, under a hot grill.
  4. Mix the drained diced cucumber with the yogurt, garlic and lemon juice then season to taste to make the tzatziki.
  5. Remove the meatballs from the oven and leave to cool slightly. Then place in a bowl and crush slightly with a fork.
  6. Take the pitta breads and add some of the salad leaves into the breads and separate the meatball mix between the four pittas. Finish with a spoonful of tzatziki.

Top tip: Does your pitta bread always rip and fall apart when you slice it? Cut them open with scissors instead of a knife - no more broken pittas!
