Let's go with something Mediterranean... Low-fat!

Mediterranean Turkey Meatball Sandwiches (Pita or Wrap)

1 1⁄4 lbs fresh lean ground turkey (1 package)
1⁄4 cup chopped onion
1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried oregano
1⁄2 teaspoon dried mint
1⁄2 teaspoon parsley
1⁄2 teaspoon lemon pepper (be aware that most lemon pepper blends are salty, so add any additional salt sparingly)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon lemon juice

1⁄2 cup nonfat sour cream
1⁄2 medium cucumber, peeled and finely chopped
1 1⁄2 teaspoons lemon juice
1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
3 (6 inch) pita breads, cut in half crosswise (or flour tortillas)
6 lettuce leaves, torn into pieces
1 medium tomatoes, chopped

Combine turkey meatball ingredients; mix well. Shape into 18 (1 1/4") balls.
Using skillet coated with non-stick cooking spray, cook meatballs 8 to 10 minutes or until browned and no longer pink in center; stir occasionally.
Combine sauce ingredients.
Place 3 meatballs in each pita half. Add lettuce and tomato. Top with sauce.
Alternatively, place filling in a flour tortilla, and fold burrito style for a wrap!
Serves 6.
