lamb loin chops with cucumber mint salad and sweet and smoky tahini


  • 12 (10-inch) wooden skewers
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves (peeled and smashed)
  • 2 pounds boneless leg of American lamb, trim of fat, (cut into 1-inch pieces)
  • 1 medium red onion, (cut into 1-inch pieces w/layers)
  • 2 small zucchinis, (cut crosswise to 1/2 inch rounds)
  • 2 yellow squashes, (cut crosswise to 1/2  inch rounds)
  • 2 bell peppers cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Honey Mustard Thyme Dipping Sauce

  • 2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 3 tablespoons coarse grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

  • 2 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 cucumber peeled, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt


Place wooden skewers in a shallow dish and cover with water, set aside. In a small saucepan over low heat, simmer olive oil and garlic until garlic is golden brown, about 3 minutes, transfer to small bowl and set aside to cool.

Thread 6 skewers alternating American lamb and red onion. Thread remaining 6 skewers with zucchini, yellow squash and red pepper. Place on clean tray.

On a gas grill, turn all burners to high, close lid and heat until hot, about 15 minutes. Brush lamb and vegetable kabobs with garlic oil and season with salt and pepper. Place skewers on the hot grill rack. Cover and cook, turning occasionally, until each side has grill marks and lamb is cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes or until lamb reaches 160 degrees for medium doneness.

Remove from grill onto clean tray. Serve with dipping sauces and whole-wheat pita.
