Lamb Skewers

The great thing about kabobs is that you can skewer pretty much anything! From meats to fruits and vegetables, the possibilities are endless. When you’re in the mood for a tender, savory treat, try this lamb skewers recipe and you’ll be glad you did. To prepare, simply fire up your grill and use a compatible kabob insert.

Dip your coooked kabobs in a dollop of spicy salsa verde or add a little tzatziki (Meditteranean yogurt) sauce. Both are pretty tasty whether or not you choose to serve with the chimichurri sauce. For a light summertime beverage, serve fizzy water with raspberries.
