Lamb Pitas with Homemade Tzatziki Sauce

This dish is so fresh and bright tasting, perfect for those hot summer nights! It’s also very quick to make, in less than 30 minutes dinner can be on the table. We make our tzatziki sauce with sour cream rather than yogurt but that’s a personal preference you can certainly use yogurt if you prefer.
