Remove turkey from marinade; discard marinade. Place turkey slices onto grill. Grill, turning once, 5-7 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF and is no longer pink. Top each turkey slice with 2 quarters cheese during last minute of cooking.

Cut 1-inch slice off one side of each pita pocket to create small opening. Tuck cut piece of pita inside pocket. Spoon about 1/4 cup tzatziki sauce into each pocket, spreading sauce to coat bread. Place spinach leaves, tomatoes slices and turkey slices into each pocket.

 

*Substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts.

**Substitute (5-inch) white pita pockets. If you cannot find mini pita pockets, use full-sized pita pockets and cut each in half.
