Turkey Tzatziki and Tortilla Wrap



Mr. T - the Turkey, Tortilla and Tzatziki Roll Up

In small cup combine 3 Tablespoons of  sauteed until caramelized onion finely diced and 1 heaping teaspoon garlic
Add a splash of olive oil and the following:
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 teaspoon basil
two pinches crushed red pepper
a pinch of sugar (or a 1/8 tsp honey)
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Jane's Krazy Salt (or sea salt).
a small squirt of lemon

Let sit on the counter for about 10 minutes for the flavors to blend.

Gently mix herb mixture into1 pound of ground turkey breast  (lamb would also be good) and cook over medium heat until done.

Serve on warm, fresh (yes, these are homemade) tortillas  (or flatbread of your choice) with Garlic Tzatziki and additional cucumbers  and/or sliced veggies of your choice

8 ounces Greek yogurt
a pinch of salt
1/2 medium English cucumber, peeled seeded and shredded
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 and 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2-3 mint leaves,  chopped
1 and 1/2 teaspoons fresh dill chopped.

To seed the cucumber, , after peeling, cut it in half lengthwise and use a teaspoon to scrap the seeds out.

After you have shredded it the cucumber, place it in paper towels and squeeze repeatedly over the sink to remove as much as the liquid as you can.  Combine with remainder of ingredients in a food processor and pulse a few times and let let sit in refrigerator 2-3 hours (don't get in a hurry, it needs the sit time).  Keeps for a week (though stir before using)  and easily doubles.
