How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Combine cumin, paprika, salt, and turmeric in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture evenly over turkey. Add turkey to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove turkey from pan.

Step 2

Cut off top third of each pita; reserve for another use. Add pitas to pan; grill 30 seconds on each side or until marked. Cut turkey into slices. Divide turkey, cucumber, and bell pepper evenly among pitas.

Step 3

Combine tahini and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Serve tahini mixture with sandwiches.

I probably shouldn't reviews this - my market did not have turkey cutlets so hubby brought home ground turkey.  I made the ground turkey into patties and grilled them.  Good flavors.  I did add some thin sliced red onion to mine.  Very quick to put together.  Will make again and if still no turkey cutlets, I will make my own chicken cutlets.

Very tasty - the tahini sauce is excellent. I served these in whole wheat wraps instead of pitas - easier to fit everything in and hold it together!
