Greek Lettuce Wraps with Tzatziki Sauce

Greek lettuce wraps I recently shared these Greek Lettuce Wraps with Tzatziki Sauce on the awesome blog What’s Cooking with Ruthie.  I realize I am a total contradiction to myself from post to post claiming one day to have sworn off breads, pasta and sweets only to post the next time on a tomato tart, but I’m back on track today with this yummy, light and healthy dish!!

The Nashville Farmer’s Market is exploding with every locally grown vegetable to be found, but one my new favorite foods to get at NFM is grass-fed, organic lean ground meat from KLD Farm.  For this recipe I seasoned and browned the meat with Cavender’s Greek Seasoning and with the help of a little Bibb lettuce, tomatoes and Tzatziki sauce (lightened up with Greek yogurt, of course), I can enjoy these Greek Lettuce Wraps pretty much guilt-free.  The glorious thing about them is that they are incredibly tasty and filling, but are truly on the freshest, lightest side of the food scale spectrum!  With all that being said, let’s get to the point of this post, which is the low in fat, high in taste and flavor Greek Lettuce Wrap.
