Paleo Tzatziki Sauce & Lamb Wraps

Oh how I love Greek food, or the Americanized version of what I think Greek food should be. Gyros are amazing, with their perfectly sliced meat, warm pita bread, and oozing with tzatziki sauce, yum!  But pita bread and a yogurt based sauce is not really Paleo is it?  My version of lamb wraps will give you all the satisfaction of a traditional gyro but none of the guilt.
