To make skewers, alternate lamb, tomato and olives. Finish with a piece of lamb so that there are 3 cubes of lamb per skewer. Place skewers on prepared baking sheet. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat source for 2 minutes per side for 8 total minutes.

Serve skewers hot with pita bread, Cucumber Salad and tzatziki sauce.

Serving Ideas: Rosemary skewers would be fantastic with these kebabs. Be sure to wrap exposed rosemary leaves with foil to keep from burning.
