Beef & Lamb Gyros Salad With Grilled Red Onions, Goat Cheese & Tzatziki Dressing

Beef & Lamb Gyros Salad With Grilled Red Onions, Goat Cheese & Tzatziki Dressing
I love a good Gyro and when I found the gyro meat package at Sam’s Club I was all in! Wanting to make it a little lighter than the wrap, I opted for a salad instead. I also swapped out the tomatoes for roasted red peppers because it’s hard to get a good tomato this time of year and truth be told I’m kind of a tomato snob…Well, it was everything I could have wanted in a great Gyro without the bread… Delicious!

Beef & Lamb Gyros Salad With Grilled Red Onions, Goat Cheese
1/2 lb Beef & Lamb Gyro meat
1 red onion sliced about 1/4 inch thick
1 seedless cucumber
1 roasted red pepper diced
1/2 cup creamy goat cheese
1 head Boston Bibb
salt & pepper to taste

Heat a grill pan and spray with oil. Grill the onions until almost tender but with a little bite. Next cook up the meat for about 2 minutes until it crisps and browns. Grate half the cucumber for the dressing and slice the other half for the salad. Assemble the lettuce on 2 plates, add the cucumbers, diced red pepper, the meat and the onions. Gently crumble the goat cheese on top and add the Tzatziki dressing, (recipe below… Best made a day ahead!)

Tzatziki Dressing
1/2 seedless cucumber, grated and drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tbs olive oil
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
1/2 tsp pepper

Add the Greek yogurt to the bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and serve.

Enjoy!
