Reviews for Heavenly Greek Tacos
"Wonderful, refreshing recipe. This is the second time I have made this meal, and we loved it again. If you like Greek food and Greek salad this will definitely appeal to you. My favorite part is the homemade cucumber sauce; it tastes SO yummy and fresh. The whole meal is very light and perfect for a summer evening."
"Our whole family hated it. We immediately pushed our plates away and grabbed the peanut butter and jelly. Had I just served the fish without the sauce we would have been okay. The sauce made with the Greek yogurt and olives was terrible to us. Maybe we just aren't fans of Greek food."
"Delicious! The marinade on the mahi is especially fabulous. The recipe made more sauce than we needed, so I'll likely cut it in half for next time."
