Here is another great and pretty healthy meal. This would be another quick, summer evening meal.

Beef & Spinach Gyros
A gyro typically is made of meat, often lamb, roasted on a spit and served sandwich style in folded pita bread. It's topped with tomato, onion and a Greek-style yogurt. Tradition takes a slight twist with the use of ground beef, spinach and ripe olives. Opa!
6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 25 min.
1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
6 green onions, chopped
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
2 teaspoons lemon-pepper seasoning, divided
1 large tomato, chopped
1 cup (8 ounces) fat-free plain yogurt
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
6 pita breads (6 inches), halved
12 lettuce leaves
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink.
Add the spinach, onions, olives and 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper; heat through. Stir in tomato; set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, mayonnaise and remaining lemon-pepper. Line pita halves with lettuce; fill with beef mixture and feta cheese. Serve with yogurt sauce.
Yield: 6 servings.
