To taste salt and pepper


Mix Tzatziki Sauce and refrigerate.
Mix all marinade ingredients in a bowl.
Marinate turkey for 1-2 hours.

Serve with grilled pita bread and Tzatziki Sauce.

From the Chef: This classic Greek staple is easy to make and the cool and refreshing tzatziki sauce gives it a summer-fresh taste. If you are able to find real Greek dried oregano it is much more pungent than Italian oregano and will give it a more authentic flavour.
