  4. For the tzatziki sauce, place the grated cucumber into a medium bowl with the salt. Set aside for 2 minutes, then drain off any excess water.

  5. Mix in the remaining ingredients, then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  6. When the meatballs have finished cooking, assemble the plates. Divide the meatballs equally and serve with a portion of the tomato salad, tzatziki and toasted pita bread. Wowzers, enjoy!
