  • ¾ cup coarsely shredded, seeded cucumber

  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese (1 ounce)

  • 1 small zucchini, cut into 3/4-inch pieces

  • 1 small yellow summer squash, cut into 3/4-inch pieces

  • 1 cup small fresh mushrooms

  • 1 small red onion, cut into thin wedges

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 4 Greek pita flatbreads

  • 1 medium roma tomato, sliced

  • Snipped fresh dill and/or crumbled feta cheese (optional)


  1. For tzatziki, in a small bowl combine cucumber, yogurt, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon dill, garlic, and salt. Fold in 1/4 cup cheese. If desired, cover and chill for up to 2 hours.

  2. On four 10- to 12-inch skewers* alternately thread zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms, and onion, leaving 1/4 inch between pieces. Brush with oil; sprinkle with oregano and crushed red pepper.

  3. For a charcoal or gas grill, place skewers on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 12 to 14 minutes or until vegetables are tender, turning occasionally. Remove from grill. Place pita flatbreads on grill rack. Grill for 2 to 4 minutes or until heated through and lightly toasted, turning once halfway through grilling.

  4. Spread pita flatbreads with tzatziki. Folding a flatbread around each skewer, hold the vegetables with the bread while pulling out the skewer. Top with tomato slices and, if desired, additional dill and/or cheese. Fold in half.


If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes; drain before using.
