Greek Turkey Pitas

I originally got this idea from Pampered Chef, but found it needed adjusting. It's very healthy, quick, easy, and good. I am not an exacting cook. I've tried to put amounts down-but basically most of it is to taste. Really important to get plain yogurt (not vanilla). Also, this can all be prepared ahead and just heat the meat when serving.

Ingredients for the burgers:
1 lb ground turkey meat
1/4 yellow or white onion chopped
1 T garlic
1 T oregano
1 pkg wheat pita bread
lettuce
tomato-sliced
red onion-cut into thin rings
cucumber-peeled and sliced thinly

Ingredients for the sauce:
1 cup plain fat free yogurt
1/2 cup feta cheese-crumbled
1/4 cup red onion-finely diced
1 tsp lemon juice
salt/pepper
mint (I rarely have it on hand)
1 tsp garlic powder

Mix together and brown the turkey, white onion, garlic and oregano. In a small bowl, mix yogurt, feta, and red onion dices. Put 1/2 cup of meat mixture in each pita. Stuff with tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, and red onion rings. Top with the sauce.
