Helpful tips

You are going to need a high-speed blender or food processor to make the special feta sauce. To get the right consistency you might have to add some more yogurt to thin it out. It depends on how dry the feta is. The sauce should be thick but pourable. I don’t add salt because the feta is salty, but you might add some pepper if you like.

If I eat feta I prefer to buy cow feta in brine. This is my favorite type of feta because it is creamy and milder in taste. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find. I buy it from an international store, or I order it online. You can use whatever feta you have and like. I don’t recommend using feta that is already crumbled, because it has additives and anti-caking agents. This might change the texture of the sauce.

Other tips

You can make as many servings as you want. The sauce will be enough for two more sandwiches. I made only two sandwiches because only my husband and I were home.

I used a mandoline slicer to cut the cucumbers and onion thinly. That is totally optional. You can slice your vegetables with a knife.

I used whole wheat pita pockets and fire roasted peppers from Trader Joe’s. You can find Prosciutto in most stores. I got mine form Costco.
