My Kitchen, My World: Macedonia

Our second destination this month for My Kitchen, My World, was Macedonia. I did an Internet search to see if there was some specialty or distinctive dish for the region, and the closest I came was this pita-filled treat.

Basically, it's a lamb or beef patty, seasoned with lemon, onion, garlic, and oregano, then placed in a pita along with lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese, and a tzatziki-type sauce (yogurt and cucumbers).

It was quick to prepare and given my recent schedule, that was a good thing! It was also delicious. I had picked up the Persian cucumbers and the fresh tomatoes from the farmers market a few days before. Ordinarily, I would make the pitas from scratch, but because of the time constraint, I used store-bought ones. They were still pretty tasty.
