I haven’t posted a recipe in awhile and I recently made these easy Greek salad tacos that I just love and thought I would share with you. They are really delicious and different and a nice alternative to a salad or a lighter dinner. I can pretty much eat my weight in Greek Salad and throw them in a great flour tortilla and add some cilantro and I’m in heaven.
This recipe is so easy to make. You can either grill chicken and slice or you can use already cooked grilled chicken in the bag. I like to use the John Soules Foods grilled fajita chicken and pre grilled chicken makes it easy to makes these for a quick lunch.
So here’s the recipe:
Greek Salad Tacos with Cucumber Dill Dressing
Recipe Serves 4 (8 tacos)
2 Cups Grilled Chicken
4 Cups Cut/shredded Romaine Lettuce
1 Cup Diced Tomatoes
3/4th Cup Diced Cucumbers
1/4th Cup Diced Cilantro
1 Cup Feta Cheese Crumbled
1/2 Cup Sliced Black Olives
1/2 Cup Ken’s Greek Dressing
1 Cup Dannon Oikos Dips Cucumber and Dill (sold in the refrigerated section with the party dips)
8 Flour Tortilla’s
Toss all of the ingredients together for the salad except leave the feta and the cucumber dill dip/dressing until you get the salad into the tacos. The cucumber dill dip is made by Dannon and is an Oikos dip that has become a favorite of mine. If you’ve never tried it before, it’s sold in the refrigerated section with the other party dips but its a Greek yogurt dip. If for some reason you cannot find it, you can mix together dill weed, plain greek yogurt and little hint of salt for a similar dip.
If you’ve never tried a refrigerated tortilla before that has to be cooked, let me tell you that it’s life changing. All you have to do is heat them up for about a minute on each side and they are unbelievable good and light. It’s all I will use now.
After you toss the salad, fill your tortillas with the salad to make each taco and top with the feta and drizzle of the dip and you are good to go. If you want to make these for dinner and grill your own chicken, the Ken’s Greek Dressing is the best marinade for chicken!
By the way, last year, I shared an easy recipe for a Greek Pasta Salad that is also one of my favorites if you’re interested in more Greek Salad type recipes:
I hope you guys get the chance to try these tacos because I think you will love them and it helps that they are so quick an easy to make.
Have a wonderful weekend friends and I’ll be back for Paint It Monday.
