Drool Worthy Grilled Lamb

Drool worthy lamb has just made its way on my summer grilling menu. There’s no way I’m just going to have something this delicious only on Easter.

Easter Lamb made me think about how good it would be good at pretty much any time? For instance, think Mediterranean dinner with a little Tabouleh on the side or salad with Tzatziki sauce.

And speaking of salad, Greek salad sounds amazing. Fresh cucumber and sweet red onion pair nicely with kalamata olives and feta cheese on a bed of greens. How much better would that same salad be with a little sliced, grilled lamb? Irresistible, right?

Most of the ingredients are easy to get from local grocers. If that’s not possible, Prime Pantry or Prime Fresh make finding ingredients even easier.

Check out how my lamb turned out, and grab the recipe below to try it yourself.

Try my recipe and I bet you’ll find it a nice addition to your summer menu.
