Wash produce before use
Make the cucumber tzatziki; prep the tomatoes
- Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim the ends; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise. Cut the halves lengthwise into ¼-inch-thick slices, then crosswise into enough ¼-inch pieces to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Cut the tomatoes in half; set aside for garnish.
Cook the lamb; warm the pita breads
- Cut a small corner from the ground lamb packages and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in the same pan used for the lamb over medium heat, warm the pita breads, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds per side. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Stir the cucumber tzatziki.
- Top the gyros with spinach, tzatziki, and tomatoes.
