Lamb Skewers with Mint Sauce

Lamb Skewers with Mint Sauce made in only 30 minutes, yet incredibly tasty.

Lamb Skewers with Mint Sauce
Juicy, mediterranean and delish. These are the three words that come to mind when thinking about lamb skewers with mint sauce. Picnic and barbecue season is in full swing and so is camping and eating outside. And that's also the best way to prepare these fabulous lamb skewers (however, they will be super delicious cooked on a grill inside as well). In Greek, these skewers are known as Souvlaki. The meat is eaten hot and often served with flatbread and hummus (chickpeas spread). We absolutely adore lamb skewers because they are 1)super juicy and 2)prepared in 30 minutes from start to finish, which makes them perfect for dinner during the week or over the weekends. You can also serve them with seasonal salads, avocado or in a tortilla. Simple, tasty and oh so juicy.
