Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix all meatballs ingredients today (except tapioca flour and oil for frying). Cover and place in the fridge for at least an hour to let flavors marinate.
  2. While the meatballs marinate, make the greek salad. Combine all ingredients into a medium bowl and stir to combine. If making tzatziki or cauliflower rice, make those as well.
