Lets do some grillin'

Look at those grilled beauties. 
So this recipe called for lamb,
I had a coupon for organic lamb.
PERFECT, right?
The store didn't have the lamb that I had the coupon for. 
Because I refused to pay full price, I bought beef.
And it was still delicious. 
So you could use beef, lamb, pork, chicken, or even portabella.
The dipping sauce was amazing and the flavor from the grilled lemon totally made the dish.
I served them with an orzo salad, 
you could also grill up some veggies, potatoes or cook up some rice.  
Anything would be good with these goodies.  

Lemon Garlic Lamb Kebabs
1 1/2 lbs leg of lamb, well trimmed and cut into 20 equal cubes
8 thin lemon wedges
1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for grill
2 T fresh lemon juice
4 garlic cloves, minced
Feta dipping sauce (recipe below)

Heat grill to high and assemble 4 long skewers alternating 5 lamb cubes with 2 lemon wedges on each.  Arrange the skewers on a nonmetallic dish. 
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice and garlic.  Pour the marinade over the skewers; turn to coat.  Let stand for at least 5 min.  Season with S&P.
Lightly oil grill grates and place skewers on the grill; cover and cook, turning occasionally until grill marks are visible and the meat is cooked to desired doneness.  
1-2 min per side for med-rare.
Serve with sauce.
Serves 4.

Feta Dipping Sauce
2 oz feta cheese
1 T fresh lemon juice 

In a blender, puree the feta, lemon juice, and 2 T water.  Season with S&P.
