here), but did not search for it. You know, I thought I would go for it if I ever find myself to the store and if it's at a reasonable price. And what a coincidence that was to find it at my recent visit to the local H&M hanging there as it was waiting for me -only one size left and that was my size?!- oh yeah! for 20 dollars?..yes, that was a good one..

What can I say..when you are far from home, you really miss some things. This time we did our best (considering you cannot find the exact match of ingredients needed) and made one of the things we love back here. Ok, it will never have the taste of that extra something you find when you buy it from your favorite souvlaki restaurant, but currently, I don't mind at all!
For my style of homemade souvlaki you will need: fresh cut french fries, tzatziki, sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, pita bread (you can put them on the grill for two or three minutes) and grilled beef or pork skewers. And then all you have to do is take the pita and fill it in with whatever you like.
As far as tzatziki is concerned, I use greek yogurt 2% fat, two cloves of garlic (melted), cucumber grated and then squeezed until its juices are gone, olive oil and salt. Mix it all together and leave it in the fridge for a while.
The combo is deli-cious. Enjoy!
