This is one of my family’s favorite dishes that they ask for me to make constantly. Its super simple to throw together last minute or meal prep overnight to marinate in all those delicious yet simple flavors. The

I would also advise you to make this with my Lazy Tzatziki or traditional Greek Tzatziki for dipping. It really brings this dish together and to the next level. I would also serve this with some warm pita and my Greek Traditional Horiatiki Salata or Maroulosalata.
