Gyro Kebabs #FantasticalFoodFight

Welcome to another Food Fight! Fantastical Food Fight is a group of food bloggers who will get a theme or ingredient each month and make some sort of variation for it. It could be traditional or nontraditional and can be found in a cookbook, on a blog, or be a blogger's own creation! For more details, check out this page.

This month's Fantastical Food Fight theme is KEBABS. Or kabobs? Kababs? I don't know how you want to spell it, but it's food on a skewer! Bonus points if it's grilled because July is National Grilling Month. I knew right away what I wanted to make - these amazing kebabs from Wendy's blog! I found these when I was hunting for a Secret Recipe Club recipe. I have never purchased lamb and made a recipe at home. I've only had lamb in doner kebab. However, our local German fast food restaurant shut down for good and I can no longer get doner and it bums me out so much. Enter this recipe!

I loved that doner kebabs had tons of fresh veggies and tzatziki sauce (a MUST). These kebabs have a sauce that is very close to tzatziki sauce and I absolutely adore the Greek salsa. The recipe is easy to prepare and the lamb is the only part that needs cooking time and even it doesn't take long. The seasonings added to the lamb kebabs are simple but work so well with the salsa and feta-yogurt sauce. All-in-all this is definitely a recipe I will make every once in a while (since lamb is a bit more expensive per pound than other meats) because I just love the combination of ingredients so much and it's incredibly easy to make.
