Chicken Tzatziki Pita Salad

Ingredients

2 lbs cucumbers

2 Tbsp butter, melted

1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt

4 cloves garlic, divided

2 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped

1 Tbsp lemon juice

Ciabatta or focaccia buns

Oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

 

Wash and cut cucumber in half.  Remove any large seeds.  Place cucumbers, cut-side-down on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.  Brush cucumbers with melted butter and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Roast until tender (about 15 minutes).

 

While cucumbers are roasting mix yogurt, 2 gloves garlic (crushed), mint & lemon juice together in a medium bowl.    

Once cucumbers have cooled somewhat, chop into pieces and add to the yogurt mixture.

Brush cut sides of buns with oil and "sprinkle" with the other 2 cloves of crushed garlic.  Toast the buns in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned.

Spoon cucumber and yogurt mixture onto the buns and serve.
