  • 1 pita bread
  • 1 3.75 oz can of King Oscar Sardines—Mediterranean Style, drained See notes
  • 2 TBSP Tzatziki See notes for my homemade tzatziki
  • 1 cup mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 TBSP sliced kalamata or black olives
  • 1/8 cup thinly sliced red onion (or just a few slivers)
  • 1 tsp drained capers


  • Drain your can of sardines.
  • Slather the tzatziki over the pita, then top with the mixed greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, red onion, and capers.
  • Top the pita off with the contents of the sardine can. You can place the fillets on whole, or roughly chop them them place them on.
  • Feast on the pita as is, or carefully roll it up with foil and enjoy it like a gyro!


If you can't find the Mediterranean-style sardines, you can use King Oscar's brisling sardines packed in extra virgin olive oil; add a spritz of lemon juice for extra flavor.
