Greek Meatball Salad is a turkey meatball flavored with greek seasonings and served in a salad with tzatziki sauce. Tzatziki sauce is a cucumber and sour cream based sauce, thinned out to become a salad dressing.
Combine the ground turkey, bread crumbs, eggs, lemon zest, garlic, cumin, oregano, parsley, mint, salt and pepper together into a bowl.
Form into 16-20 meatballs, about a tablespoon size each.
To Bake: preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with foil. Place a cooling rack on top and spray with non stick. Place the meatballs on top and bake for 18-20 minutes. To Air Fry: add the meatballs to your air fryer, set at 380 degrees for 12-14 minutes. To Pan Fry: add a little olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat and cook the meatballs, turning to get browned on all sides for 3-4 minutes each side.
For the Sauce:
Combine the Greek yogurt (or sour cream), cucumber, lemon juice, olive oil and fresh herbs together in a small bowl.
Whisk until combined and adjust seasonings to taste.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes before serving.
For the Salad:
Divide the lettuce into 4 bowls, then divide the cucumber and grape tomatoes among them.
Add 4-5 meatballs per bowl and drizzle the tzatziki sauce on top.
Garnish with croutons.
Dried herbs can be used in the tzatziki sauce instead of fresh. Start with 1 tsp of each and add more, according to your tastes.
