Greek Turkey Meatball Pitas 1501 2000 The Ultimate Lineup

This recipe is a great way to use ground turkey without it getting to dry.  It is also a super simple weeknight meal that packs a ton of flavor in a short period of time.  Prep is the longest part of this recipe and I shorten it by using premade Hummus, Tzatziki, and pita breads.  Cutting onions always makes my eyes water, I have tried every trick in the book and nothing works to the point that for a while I resorted to buying pre-chopped onions to avoid cutting them.  I never could find pre-sliced onions though, and there is a difference in taste in the onions fresh cut vs precut, with this recipe I have found the solution.. a mandolin.  I sliced my cold from the fridge onion using my mandolin on the 2nd thinnest setting and got the perfect slice without any watering eyes!! I have adopted this as my new way of cutting and prepping onions from now on.
