Greek Turkey Tacos

These tacos are fun, light and so darn delicious. They could be served as lettuce wraps I stead of in tortillas for a healthier meal. I like to prep the tzatziki and cucumber salsa a few hours ahead of time so they have plenty of time for the flavors to meld.

Cucumber Salsa:
1 large cucumber peeled and diced
3 roma tomatoes,  diced
1/4 red onion diced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt

1 6 oz container plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup light sour cream
2 teaspoons fresh dill, minced
3-4 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 medium cucumber very finely diced (about 1 cup)

1 lb ground turkey
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp oregano
1/8 cup white wine
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1/4 cup chicken broth

Romaine lettuce
Feta cheese

Mix all ingredients for salsa and refrigerate. Mix all ingredients for tzatziki and refrigerate. Brown ground turkey and season with garlic, onion and oregano.  When it's about 3/4 of the way cooked, drain off any liquid, add wine and turn up to medium high.  When meat is cooked thoroughly, reduce heat to medium and add tomato paste and broth. Cook until most liquid is gone.

Serve with a romaine lettuce leaf om a tortilla, fill with turkey,  cucumber salsa and tzatziki.  I also like to add a good sprinkle of feta! Enjoy! !
