Ingredients

For the Kebabs:

2 pounds skinless, boneless turkey breast, cut into 2-inch cubes

1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more for the grill

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon paprika

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

12 slices bacon

For the Dressing:

1 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Split French bread rolls, Little Gem lettuce and halved grape tomatoes, for serving

Directions

  1. Make the kebabs: Combine the turkey, vegetable oil, lemon zest, paprika and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat.
  2. Preheat a grill to medium. Thread the turkey onto six 12-inch skewers. Wrap 2 bacon slices around each skewer, overlapping slightly, to cover the turkey. 
  3. Brush the grill grates with vegetable oil. Grill the kebabs, turning often, until the turkey is cooked through and the bacon is crisp, about 25 minutes. 
  4. Meanwhile, make the dressing: Combine the mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice and parsley in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Serve the kebabs in rolls with lettuce and tomatoes; drizzle with the dressing. 

Cook’s Note

If you use wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes so they won't burn.
