  • mandolin
  • oven


  • 12 taco shells bought
  • 2 lettuce hearts
  • 140 gr corn
  • 3 radish
  • 15 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 spring onion
  • ¼ red onion
  • 2 tbl spoon coriander fresh chopped

Ingredients to make tzatziki

  • 125 gr Greek yogurt
  • 150 gr cucumber = 1 small
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ tbl spoon dill fresh chopped
  • ½ tbl spoon olive oil
  • pinch salt


  • Turn on the oven at 180º. Ten minutes before serving, heat the taco shells on an oven tray lined with baking paper for 5 minutes. (put them neatly next to each other in the oven)

Make the Tzatziki:

  • Rinse the cucumber. Grate it with the mandoline. Squeeze out the liquid or use cheesecloth to squeeze out the liquid. Put the yoghurt in a bowl together with the crushed garlic clove. NB! Do not use too much garlic because raw it is quite spicy and the taste is very strong. Also put the other ingredients for the tzatziki together in the bowl (cucumber, dill, olive oil and salt). Personally, I like to add a little bit of white pepper, but that is to your own taste. Mix everything with a spoon and refrigerate.
  • Rinse the radishes and slice finely with a knife or mandoline.
    If you use canned corn, drain it.
    Cut the lettuce hearts into thin slices.
    Rinse the cherry tomatoes and cut them into quarters.
    Finely slice the spring onions.
    Cut the red onion into fine half rings.
    Chop the coriander.
  • I prefer to put all the ingredients in separate bowls so that everyone can chose their own taste. If you still want to serve ready-made tacos, proceed as follows:
    After heating the tacos, first fill with a layer of lettuce, and then add a little of all the other ingredients. Spoon a spoonful of tzatziki on top and garnish with the coriander.


Crispy tacos with fresh homemade tzatziki… The taco originated in Mexico. They consist of a tortilla, usually made from cornmeal or wheat flour, which is filled with various ingredients of your choice. Originally the filling mainly consists of meat or minced meat, but I go for the vegetarian version. Here I make a flavor combination of Mexican cuisine with Greek and personally I think that is a match made in heaven…
I didn’t make the tacos in this dish myself, they are crunchy taco shells that you heat up in the oven. We like these because they are so nice and thin and crunchy. Besides, it’s always a party at the table when we eat tacos. I prepare all ingredients and provide numerous types of vegetables, toppings and herbs. Sometimes there are about 15 jars on the table, which everyone can combine to their own taste… Just think of guacamole, red beans, fried onions,…. Which combinations do you like? Have a nice day…
