Chicken Gyro Meatball Salad

Chicken Gyro Meatball Salad

This healthy gyro salad with spiced chicken meatballs and chopped fresh vegetables makes a perfect low-carb, gluten-free or ketogenic main dish. This chicken gyro salad celebrates the fantastic flavors of a Greek gyro sandwich, only lightened-up and made into a salad. It’s a super-tasty meal-in-one salad I’ve been happily enjoying as a complete meal these days.

And bonus – it’s so easy to put together, especially if you make a batch of the meatballs ahead of time. You might be happy to know this creation is also low carb, keto-friendly and gluten-free (just skip the pita on the side) — basically an all-around healthy plate. Gyros are one of the tastiest sandwiches in the world, don’t you think? The classic gyro features pita stuffed with spiced rotisserie-roasted meat, tomato, onions and tangy yogurt tzatziki sauce. Yum! But instead of the meat you’d find on a gyro platter (usually beef or lamb, in loaf form), this salad has bite-size meatballs made with ground chicken and seasonings.

Ingredients:

Meatballs

  • 1 pound (450 g) ground chicken thigh meat
  • 1/4 cup (40 g) grated onion

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) tahini paste
