Apple Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

I was looking for something different to make on “Meatfree Monday”.  This recipe for Apple Salad caught my eye because you can really take advantage of the upcoming fall apple season. According to the recipe creator:

My vegetarian friend inspired me to create this dish when she was longing for a great Gyro with lots of cucumber. I made this salad instead, with some pita bread for scooping, and it turned out to be a real treat.—Aysha Schurman, Ammon, Idaho
