So it may not be "authentic" it's still a great meal, and pretty healthy.

This turned out really good. Due to personal preference I used Cucumber Sauce for Gyros #129930 just because I like a dill based sauce instead of mint. I like the way the pita gets sorta crunchy. I fun recipe. Thanks. I'm sure we'll make this often.
