This recipe is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser! The lamb can definitely be marinated a day ahead. Tzatziki is one of my favorite condiments – I always have it in my fridge and use it on so many things. This dish is also great with chicken, beef or pork. Souvlaki night can be the new taco night!






Special equipment:
two 10-to-12-inch metal skewers
  1. For the marinade: Mix together in a bowl the garlic, oregano, red wine vinegar, lemon zest and juice, olive oil, pinch salt and crushed red pepper. Add the lamb cubes and let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. While the lamb marinates, make the tzatziki: Grate the cucumber on a box grater, sprinkle with salt and let drain for about 10 minutes. Add to a bowl with the yogurt, white vinegar, dill, mint and garlic and mix to combine.
  3. For the salad: Mix together the tomato, cucumber and red onion in a bowl. Add salt, lemon and olive oil and toss to combine.
  4. Thread the lamb cubes on 2 skewers and grill over medium-high heat on a grill pan, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove and add the pita to the grill until grill marks appear and it’s toasted, a minute or two.
  5. Top the grilled pita with the lamb, arugula, salad, feta, tzatziki and garnish with oregano.
