Laura: Maybe you could Google "Tzatziki Sauce" and create a version of that. I think you have a good idea there!
Apple Turkey Picadillo
From EatingWell: September/October 2007
This twist on the Latin American staple is made healthier with lean ground turkey and crisp apples. It doubles well. Try tucking it into whole-wheat tortillas or serve over instant brown rice for a quick and healthy supper.

We really liked this, although I made a few changes. I used a pound of ground turkey and a can of diced tomatoes instead of the whole tomato. I also had to substitute black olives because I didn't have green. I added a bit more of all of the spices and also added cayenne pepper to spice it up a little more. Delicious!
I love this dish- I serve it in lettuce wraps. great flavor and simple
I have made this several times (perhaps once a year?), and love the unusual combination of flavors. My husband and 6 year old also like it. As tomatoes are out of season, I often use diced, no salt added canned tomatoes. This recipe might be a bit sweet for those who don't prefer any sweetness in a main course.
As a Puerto Rican who grew up eating "regular" picadillo, and loving it, this was a tough sell. The is dish is inspired by the original, but is its own animal. It has totally different flavor, of course, given the ingredients (apple cider vinegar being the key, in my opinion). It's a healthy alternative to the original, and a crowd-pleaser. I add a whole can of tomatoes to make it saucier, and serve it over white rice.
