Here, we make easy “gyros” by simply shaping meatballs into longer shapes and baking them in the oven in a speedy, uncomplicated way! This Greek gyros salad is a filling and satisfying lighter lunch option; you will love the fresh dill tzatziki dressing!

Chef Tips:

  • Use ground lamb in place of beef if you like!
  • The gyros can be fried, but there is no breadcrumbs or egg to bind, so baking them in the oven helps them hold shape – they won’t fall apart!
