Lamb Souvlaki with Tzatziki

35 Minutes | easy | Serves 4

This simple souvlaki recipe is great with pork too, although lamb tends to stay juicier on the grill. It’s super summery served with a simple tzatziki and flatbreads, although pitta would work just as well. A Greek salad with olives and feta would be lovely as a side dish.
