  • Juice of 2 lemons, separated
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (whole milk or low fat)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup 1/4-inch diced cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon Champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Try this taco version for a more appetizing and tasty alternative to the traditional Mexican dish.


In a large skillet coated lightly with oil, sautee the garlic and onion until lightly caramelized.

Add in the lamb, season with cumin, paprika, Greek seasoning or salt, and cook through, about 5 minutes. Fold in lemon juice (from 1 lemon) and check for flavor.

In the meantime, prepare the tsatziki sauce by mixing the yogurt with the sour cream, cucumber, vinegar, olive oil, garlic, dill and lemon juice (from 1 lemon). Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Warm tortillas, shred the lettuce, assemble the tacos with tzatziki, lettuce and cheese on top.
