Preparation -- 15 minutes + waiting time

PEEL the red onion and garlic clove. CHOP the red onion into (half) rings and the garlic clove as fine as possible. DIVIDE the pork fillets into small strips and combine them with gyros spice mix, lemon juice and the finely chopped garlic.

Marinate for at least an hour, the longer you'll wait the tastier the meat will be. CHOP the cucumber and cherry tomatoes into slices and rinse the lettuce if needed.

CREATE the homemade garlic sauce, or use store-bought sauce.
