Fresh taste, perfect for hot summer days!
First time making (and eating) Greek food and it was absolutely amazing! Only thing I changed was not adding lettuce.
Loved the tzatziki sauce!
Tasted good -- I always turn the lettuce wraps into a salad because it's just easier to eat, but the warm toppings were a little odd on a salad this time.
This was my favorite dish this week. I was amazed at the flavor in the shawarma.
This is SO delicious. I can't do cucumber so we made a tzatziki-esque sauce with greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, and dill. Once we heated the naan, I brushed the inside with some olive oil to make sure it wasn't too dry. Absolutely one of my favorite Cooksmarts meals.
