  1. Make the meatball mixture: Add the meatball ingredients to a small mixing bowl and use your hands to mix until well combined.
  2. Roll the meatballs: Next, use a cookie dough scoop or tablespoon to scoop the turkey mixture and use your hands to form into meatballs.
  3. Fry the meatballs: When the meatballs are formed, heat a large skillet over medium heat and then add a tablespoon of oil. Next add the meatballs to the hot skillet and cook for roughly 3-4 minutes per side until browned and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. You may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your skillet.
  4. Make the Yogurt Sauce: Add the Greek yogurt and tahini to a mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined and then add the lemon juice, water, garlic, and salt and whisk again until smooth. Add more lemon juice to taste and more water to thin if needed.
  5. Assemble the Bowls: Serve the meatballs over chopped romaine lettuce and spring mix, with feta, cucumber, tomato, olives, red onion, couscous, and yogurt sauce.
