Greek cuisine is an example of a healthy Mediterranean diet and this dish is the perfect selection for your summer barbecue.

Lamb and Halloumi Summer Kebobs
Prep: 15 mins | Cook: 10 mins | Serves: 6 | Cut: Leg
Have a little fun with food this summer and choose to make a meal-on-a-stick! Break the summer habit of grilled burgers and hot dogs – instead indulge in flavorful Mediterranean style lamb cubes, skewered in-between cubes of slightly tangy and salty halloumi cheese. New Zealand Spring Lamb’s lamb leg is extremely versatile and can be roasted in the oven or grilled to perfection. The easy preparation of this meal gives you plenty of extra time to focus on enjoying backyard activities with your family and friends. Plate these kebobs with a fresh baby green/herb mix salad with some sliced avocado.
Prep: 25 mins | Cook: 10 mins | Serves: 3 to 4 | Cut: Ground
These spicy Middle Eastern Kebobs make a
great midweek dinner and can even be prepared ahead of time for an easy fix to
your busy schedule. This recipe calls for the use of New Zealand Spring Lamb’s ground lamb,
which is a naturally lean meat and makes a wonderful alternative to fattier
proteins. Feeling adventurous this summer? Try “un-kebobbing” the kebobs and
cook the meat without the skewers or shape into patties for an ultra-exotic
burger. Take this dish one step tastier and choose to prepare some Carrot and Israeli
Couscous Salad to accompany your creation.
All you’ll need now is a sweet treat to end the meal, and a few refreshing drinks to wash everything down. Featuring side dishes and grill entrées, these recipes are too delicious not to whip up as often as you possibly can, throughout the year!
