How To Make Lamb Souvlaki Like My Greek Grandma

This year has definitely been a mixed bag of emotions, but I’m doing my best to stay positive. One bright spot has been consistently working in partnership with Fred Meyer and Kroger on Instagram! They’ve been such awesome brand partners, especially since it gives me more of an opportunity to share recipes I love. I’m also aware that not all of my blog readers follow me on Instagram, so just in case I decided to publish it to the blog, too! This recipe is straight from my Yia Yia’s recipe collection (that’s Greek for grandma, btw).

  • Grill over medium-high heat, turning frequently and basting with the leftover marinade, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the grill and serve.

You know me, I’m always into setting the table and making small moments (like dinner at home) special. So we eat souvlaki on our outdoor dining table, along with some other delicious Greek sides like tzatziki. I suggest also serving the souvlaki with a plate of fresh feta cheese, tomatoes tossed with cucumber, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar, mixed olives, and a crisp, cold wine!
