Falafel Patties with Tzatziki

Falafel, a popular Middle Eastern food, consists of seasoned pureed chickpeas that are shaped into balls or patties and then deep fried and served stuffed inside pita bread. In our version, we've opted to lightly pan-fry the patties and serve them nestled in Boston lettuces leaves with a side of fresh, soft pita triangles. You'll need only one lemon for this meal so be sure to grate the lemon rind for the falafel before squeezing the juice for the Tzatziki.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 patty and about 1/3 cup tzatziki)
