Heat olive oil, over medium high heat, in a large frying pan and brown meatballs on all sides.  Cover and cook for 5 more minutes until just cooked through.  Keep warm in a 300 degree oven until ready to plate.  Also, wrap naan bread in foil and keep warm in oven until ready to serve.

 

To make tzatziki sauce, combine yogurt, garlic, dill, salt, and cucumber in small bowl and stir to combine.

 

Serve meatballs on naan and top with sauce and sprinkle with feta cheese and chopped mint.  Devour!
