  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position. Heat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, mix sour cream, yogurt, cucumber, vinegar, 1 minced garlic clove, and salt and pepper to taste; set aside.
  3. Place pitas in oven; bake until warm and pliable, 7 minutes. Cut in half. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Carefully add onion; saute until spotty brown but still crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Add turkey, oregano and remaining minced garlic; continue to saute until heated through, another 2 minutes.
  4. Serve, letting guests fill their own pitas with lettuce first, followed by turkey, tomatoes and cucumber sauce.

Fantastic Recipe, we made it exactly as suggested and it was fantasic (a bit messy though) I served it with Feta Chunks and Cucumbers and Red Onions with a vinagrette.

Light, refreshing and delicious. I used only yogurt, no mayo. Also, I added a pinch or two of sugar to both the yogurt sauce and the chicken mixture. It added extra flavor and softened the tart...

This was delicious and easy to make! The only change I made was adding more red wine vinegar to the cucumber sauce.
