Cook your shrimp to taste, in this case I sautéed them in a pan with some garlic, lots of black pepper, salt and lemon juice.

Once they are cooked put them aside.

Get your soft tacos and layer them with shredded lettuce, coleslaw and shrimp and then top them off with a drizzle of Sriracha Mayo!

Not so Greek Salad

A good friend of mine, Ann Kaar recently posted a recipe for greek salad using spiraled cucumber which of course made me drool.

Got my cucumbers, pulled out my handy dandy spiral slicer gadget and here is are my cucumbers ready to be dressed up with some yummy flavors.

Found some Nature Sweet Red and Yellow Cherry tomatoes which I thought would be ideal for it and looked very scrumptious!

Greek salad usually has cucumber, kalamata olives, feta cheese, onions and tomatoes, but of course I decided that I like my goats cheese with cranberries better than feta so today my greek salad is not so greek after all.

After adding the tomatoes sliced in half, some thinly sliced onions, olives and goats cheese, I tossed the salad in the juice of a lemon, a tablespoons of olive oil and some salt and pepper!
