1/3cupchives or green onionsthinly sliced

Carrot and Celery Slaw:
Toss together all ingredients in medium bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
Mix all ingredients in small saucepan, bring to simmer, reduce heat and simmer partially covered for 10 minutes. Keep warm.
Preheat grill to high or grill pan to med/high heat. Rub grill grates with oil.
Remove tails from shrimp and devein. Cut chicken into approx. 1½-inch pieces.
Toss chicken and/or shrimp with oil, salt and pepper.
Thread shrimp and/or chicken onto skewers.
Cook skewers on grill, turn halfway through:
-Chicken: 8-10 minutes. You can cut a test piece to see if cooked through or check the temp. 165 degrees

When almost done brush both sides with buffalo sauce and allow to finish cooking for the last few minutes. Remove to platter and cover with foil. Heat tortillas on grill.
Assemble each taco with about 1/3 cup carrot and celery slaw, 1 grilled skewer and a tablespoon or two of the buttermilk, blue cheese dressing. Sprinkle with chives or green onions. Remove skewer before eating.
*You can use 1 pound of either shrimp or chicken or a combination of both.
