Souvlaki Lamb Kabobs with Spiralized Zucchini Salad


Spiked with Greek flavours, this spiralized salad is a fun and healthy side dish for classic souvlaki.


Ingredients List:

  • 2 pkg (each 300 g) SunGold Souvlaki Lamb Kabobs
  • 4 zucchini
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) olive oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1 cup (250 mL) half-moon cucumber slices
  • 1 cup (250 mL) halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) crumbled feta cheese
  • Lemon wedges

Preparation & Directions:

  • Using a spiralizer, turn zucchini into long strands, trimming with clean kitchen shears as needed; transfer to large bowl.
  • Whisk together oil, lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper; toss with zucchini, cucumber and tomatoes.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high heat; grease grate well.
  • Grill souvlaki for 4 to 5 minutes or until grill-marked and cooked through.
  • Sprinkle feta over salad; serve with souvlaki and lemon wedges. 

Tips:

  • Substitute 1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried oregano for fresh oregano if desired.
  • A spiralizer is also known as a spiral slicer or vegetable turning slicer. They are available at most kitchenware stores or can be ordered online. Alternatively, slice zucchini into long strips with a vegetable peeler and then cut into thin strands, lengthwise, with a sharp knife.
