A month or so ago, a bunch of food trucks set up shop right in front of my office building, for one day only. To say I was like a kid in a candy store is a complete understatement. I was incredibly, dorkily excited about it, and it took me forever to decide what I was going to try. New York-style pizza? Duck tacos with fresh cherry salsa? A cheeseburger with two grilled cheese sandwiches as its bun? So many options!
I ultimately decided a BLT pita from the pita truck, and I was so happy with my choice (although I still want to try that burger...). It was loaded with bacon and generously drizzled with a creamy, delicious sauce. I went home and raved to Joe about it, who told me I should try to duplicate it at home. He just confirmed what I was already thinking.
I adapted the food truck pita in a few ways. While the pita had shredded mozzarella, I chose feta instead. And I used a traditional tzatziki sauce. For the tomatoes, I used some sweet little yellow guys from a friend's garden that were just bursting with flavor. These were absolutely delicious, and such a fun new spin on a BLT.
