Cooking Tip: Let the kids stir the sauce and put the toppings on the sandwiches.
Variation: The sauce for this sandwich is my version of the classic Greek sauce tzatziki. I find the cucumber seeds refreshing, but you can certainly remove them if you prefer. Double the recipe if you like a lot of sauce.
Variation: Substitute a generous 1/3 cup of bottled Greek salad dressing for the marinade if you are truly pressed for time.
Variation: Simply cut the sandwich recipe in half for two of you. Use the extra sauce as a dip.
