Flatout Flatbreads, Starkist Tuna and a Simple Gyro

After my love of my Healthy Italian Style Tuna Melt, I caught the sandwich bug and wanted to start converting all of my favorite unhealthy sandwich loves into a healthier product.  The partnership with both Flatout Flatbreads and Starkist Tuna was making this a very easy task to achieve.   Next up I wanted a Gyro.  I desperately wanted the savory Greek feel with a creamy, fresh Tzatziki Sauce.  I wanted to use traditional flavors, but with a unique twist as well.  

Tuna "Gyro"
2 pouches Starkist Fresh 
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried marjoram
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tbsp finely chopped red onion
Freshly ground black pepper

Two Flatout Foldit Flatbreads Rosemary and Olive Oil variety

Tzatziki Sauce
1 cup non fat Greek yogurt
1 tsp honey
1/4 cup diced cucumber
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint
Salt and pepper to taste

In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the Tzatziki Sauce, cover and set aside for 30 minutes.  In a separate bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients, place half the mixture on each of the flat breads.  Top with the Tzatziki Sauce fold over the top and enjoy all of the messy wonder of a Gyro.
