    Peter J's Note:

    Idea I came up with for something quick and healthy that can be mostly prepared in advance. I used a large cooked chicken breast cut-up but would also be a good use for leftover roast chicken. Makes 4 large tacos so I think would be a complete meal for two or a light snack / lunch for four, if using the smaller shells you'll probably be able to fill six of them. I listed a gherkin because that's what I used but you could also use a small handful of diced cucumber. Because it's served slightly chilled I think this would make a nice and quick summer meal at the end of a hot day. You could also use a low-fat Greek yoghurt and/or omit the feta. There is not a lot of sweetness in the recipe so I couldn't really say it was a kid pleaser, more of a slightly sharp taste from the salty and sour ingredients.

      These were very good! I used Fry Chik(vegetarian chicken) and made my own tortilla shell by baking in the oven. Made for the Australian swap-Jan 2012.

      The sauce was made the day before, so all we had to do today was to assemble them. We did not have any hard shell tacos, so I used soft shells and also pita bread. I used chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken I had bought and froze early this year. This was a very refreshing light "taco" for a Sunday lunch. Made for Group 5 - Cuppa Tea for AUSSIE /NZ Swap Aug 11

      What a fantastic alternative to a taco!!! I made this for lunch today...I knew it was something my kids would eat however; I figured a p.b. & j. sandwich would need to be made for the little boy my daughter is watching this summer. He really enjoyed them as well. (a kid pleaser here) I opted to use fresh cucumber in the sauce along with a little minced fresh onion and I omitted the olive oil. Oh, and I used Kalamata olives, but instead of adding them to the sauce, I chopped them and topped only the tacos of those who wanted them. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Thanks for sharing Peter. Made and reviewed for the AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #53
