Ingredients

FOR THE TZATZIKI

1 cup of greek yogurt Total 0%

1 cucumber, skin-off and grated (drain any extra liquid)

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 Tbsp of red wine vinegar

1/2 bunch of mint

1 bunch of dill

FOR THE GREEK SALAD

4 ripe tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cucumber, sliced and quartered

1 green pepper, sliced

16 black Kalamata olives

1 Tbsp dried oregano

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

FOR THE PITA BREAD

200 gr of plain flour

150 gr of wholemeal flour

7gr salt

1 Tbsp fast-acting dried yeast

10 gr sugar

3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

200ml of lukewarm water

Preparation

    For the tzatzikiIn a medium size serving bowl, mix all the ingredients well together.
  1. Keep in the fridge, if you will not use right away.
  2. For the Greek saladIn a salad bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
  3. If you are not using immediately, then don't add the olive oil and vinegar and keep in the fridge.
  4. For the pitta breadIn a food processor with the hook attachment, add the two different flours, the yeast, sugar, olive oil and slowly add the water.
  5. Knead until a non-sticky bowl forms and leave near a warm place in a bowl covered with cling film to rise for about 1 hour.
  6. Divide into 4 pieces and roll out into 25cm rounds approximately 5mm thick.
  7. Dust lightly with flour and cover for 5 minutes.
  8. Using a fork, prick the pittas lightly scoring the whole surface. This will prevent the pittas from rising when cooked.
  9. Spray a non-stick frying pan with extra virgin olive oil and fry the pittas until golden in each side.
  10. When you remove them, the trick is to put them in a plastic food bag immediately to avoid them drying up.
  11. Once cooled, they are suitable for freezing too if you want to keep them as a healthy fast food.
