  1. Yogurt  Sauce: Combine all ingredients; cover. Refrigerate several hours to allow flavors to blend.
  2. Falafel:  Process chickpeas in food processor until coarsely chopped and almost smooth. Add all remaining ingredients except cracker meal, pita breads, lettuce and cucumbers; process until well blended. Add cracker meal; process just until blended. Gradually add up to 2 oz. water if mixture is too dry to hold together, mixing well after each addition. Shape into 32 (3/4-inch-thick) patties, using a #20 scoop to portion out the chickpea mixture for each patty.
  3. Cook  on well-oiled 350ºF-flat top grill 1 to 2 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Transfer to full-sheet pan. Bake in 350ºF-convection oven 4 to 6 min. or until heated through.
  4. For  each serving: Toss 1 cup of the greens with 2 Tbsp. of the Yogurt Sauce and 1/2 oz. of the cucumbers; place on half of 1 pita bread. Top with 1 cooked Falafel patty; fold in half.
  5. Make Ahead

    Falafel patties can be shaped, wrapped tightly and refrigerated up 3 hours before baking. When ready to serve, grill and bake as directed, adding 1 to 2 min. to each of the cook times until patties are heated through.
