I’ve been craving a lamb wrap all month and when I saw Target had lamb on sale for $6.99 I knew God loved me. Greek lamb wraps (gyros, pitas, whatever you prefer to call them) are so easy to make and are great for picnics or lunches when you wanna take something different.
It’s all about the heavily seasoned lamb and cool cucumber sauce that makes this wrap so divine. (homemade cucumber sauce recipe coming up because I really didn’t like the store-bought one)
Watch me make these easy greek lamb wraps from start to finish!
