Greek cuisine is full of bright and fresh ingredients, making it the perfect blend of flavors for summertime grilling.

Be prepared to be overrun with friends and family – and possibly strangers – when you throw these skewers on the outdoor grill. They’re so fragrant, so lemony, and so delightfully savory, that everyone will want seconds. And thirds.

Grilling the lemon lends an addictive char and brings out their natural sweetness, so you may want to make extra because they can double as a fun centerpiece on the table!

Speaking of extras, you’ll want to do the same with this delicious dipping sauce! Enjoyed by the locals of the culturally Greek island country of Cyprus, talatouri is a variation of the classic Greek tzatziki sauce – it includes all of the same ingredients plus some fresh mint, making it the perfect dip for grilled meat!

Follow it up with the Greek ricing pudding and get ready to experience a Greek island vacation in your own backyard!

Now round up your ingredients, grab an F.N. Sharp chef's knife or Santoku knife and cutting board, and any other needed Greek cooking tools and let’s dig in!
