Refreshing Cucumber-Dill Sandwich

Summertime can be a hard time for cooking, especially when it gets really hot. The simple thought of using the oven or the stovetop makes me sweat even more. In such days, there’s nothing like a refreshing, easy to prepare snack, like this one I’m going to share with you in a moment.

Ingredients for two sandwiches:

  • 2 pita breads
  • 4 tablespoons yogurt (you can use mayonnaise instead)
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill, finely chopped (dried dill is almost as good)
  • 1 tomato, diced small
  • 4 slices of turkey or chicken meat leftovers, finely chopped
  • 2 lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 cup red cabbage, finely chopped

In a small bowl, prepare the dressing by mixing together the yogurt with cucumber and dill. Add a dash of salt and stir it well.

Take two plates and put an aluminum foil or a baking sheet on each of them. Put each pita bread on a plate. Top them with a lettuce leaf each, meat, tomato and red cabbage. Pour the yogurt-cucumber dressing on top, then roll up the pita bread together with the aluminum foil, making sure that the foil only wraps the sandwich, without getting stuck inside the pita roll.

Recipe variation: 2-3 garlic cloves, crushed and mixed into the dressing will give a special flavor to the sandwich.
