Lamb Loin Kebabs with Mint-Tomato Sauce, Feta & Pita
Makes 2 Dinner or 6 Appetizer Servings
|Washington State Cabernet Franc|
The key to great kebabs is making sure everything on the skewers is cut to the same size and cooks at a similar rate. Here we’ve cut lamb loin into chunks, rubbed them with a blend of savory cumin, spicy Aleppo pepper and tangy sumac, then grilled or broiled them until they just start to char.
Pair them with fluffy Greek-style pita, feta cheese, and a creamy yogurt-mint-cucumber-tomato sauce and you’re in for a treat!

- 1 cup Full Fat Yogurt
- 2 tbsp Chopped Mint
- 1/2 small Cucumber, peeled, seeded & diced
- 6 Cherry Tomatoes, diced

- ½ tsp Aleppo Pepper
- 1 tsp Sumac
- 1 tsp Salt

- 3 1/2oz Feta Cheese, finely crumbled

Stir together the mint, yogurt, tomatoes, and cucumber.

Cut the loin into small cubes.
Rub the lamb cubes with the spice blend & thread them onto skewers.
Drizzle the meat with the tablespoon of olive oil.

Serve the lamb kebabs with the yogurt sauce, crumbled feta, pickled onions, and mint leaves on the toasted pita bread.
