Greek Style Lamb Kebabs and Feta Cheese Salad

Traditional Greek kebabs can be made with different types of meat but lamb is frequently used and plenty of people like to re-create this dish at home. This recipe is simple but the kebabs are very tasty and certainly prove to be popular.

Try serving with a feta cheese salad on the side and a refreshing tzatziki dip.

Lamb Kebabs


350g / 12 ounces (approx) diced lamb
Juice of 2 lemons
2 onions
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
Ground peppercorns

To prepare:

First, start by peeling and chopping the onions
Next, de-seed both the red and green pepper and slice
Add all of these ingredients along with the diced lamb into a
medium or large bowl
Include the juice of 2 lemons and add some ground peppercorns
Cover and put in the fridge. To achieve the most out of your
marinade, it is best to leave for a period ranging from 6 12
hours prior to cooking. This is not essential but you will
get ultimate flavour by doing so
When you are ready to cook your kebabs, place the lamb, onions
and peppers on skewers

Greek Lamb Kebabs

To cook:

The kebabs can be cooked by grilling but the best way to do this is on the barbecue. By doing so, it gives the meat that authentic Greek flavour. Leave them for around 15 20 minutes, turn occasionally and serve.

Feta Cheese Salad


Lettuce leaves
Feta cheese (cubes). There are some supermarkets that sell feta cheese already in cubes or you can just purchase a block of cheese and do it yourself
A handful of olives (black or green)
a cucumber
1 cup of cherry tomatoes

To prepare:

Begin by peeling and thinly slicing the onion
Slice the cucumber
Rinse the cherry tomatoes before use. They can be kept whole or
you can halve them if you would prefer
Supermarket olives are typically stored in brine so make sure
they are drained well before adding to any salad
Cut the feta cheese into small cubes
Season to taste, serve and enjoy

Adding extras:

This may seem like a really simple salad but it does look nice and tastes good too. If you want to add anything else to accompany the dish then you could consider the following:

Stuffed vine leaves
Halloumi (for those who may prefer to use this over feta cheese)
