125g veal and pork mince
1 small egg
1 tbsp bread crumbs
2 tsp dijon mustard
Pinch of dried oregano
Pinch of dried basil
Salt and pepper
1 small continental cucumber, peels and chopped
1/2 cup plain Greek yoghurt
1 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
Salt and pepper
Whole wheat pita bread
Green leaf lettuce
Red onion, chopped
Tomatoes, chopped
Cucumber, chopped
Feta cheese, crumbled

Preheat the oven to 210 °C.

In a large bowl, mix together the mince, egg, bread crumbs, mustard, oregano, basil, salt and pepper until well combined. Roll the mixture into meatballs; this mixture should make 5-6 balls. Arrange them on a tray lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

Mix all ingredients for the tzatziki in a bowl. Whisk together the chopped cucumber, Greek yoghurt, garlic and dill. Season with salt and pepper, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Arrange meatballs with tzatziki sauce in pita bread, top with prepared fresh vegetables and feta cheese.
