Vegetarian Greek Tacos

I love making my taco salad or fish tacos for a simple and delicious lunch or dinner. What’s so great about tacos is that you can dice up or shred whatever veggies you desire, then add in your protein of choice — legumes or grilled meat, fish, or tofu. So I wondered what it would be like to make Tacos with a Greek Flair in an Ah-Ha moment. The result was a keeper. (For VEGANS, make this recipe with Vegan Cheese & Vegan Yogurt).
