Greek Wraps or Salad with Tzatziki Sauce

Some meals I just fall in love with the minute they first enter mouth. This recipe is one of those. So many great flavors and fresh ingredients all compliment each other perfectly. Great as a salad or layer in in a pita or tortilla to make a yummy wrap. Works well on the go or for a picnic dinner if you bring the sauce on the side to add before you are going to eat it.
