Greek Style Lamb Skewers

1 cup olive oil
2 Tbl. minced garlic
2 Tbl. oregano
2 Tbl. red wine vinegar
6 oz. lamb
1/2 cup honey yogurt
1 cucumber
1 Tbl. mint
1/2 tsp. saute garlic
Pinch of salt & pepper
Pinch of dried oregano

Mix olive oil, minced garlic, oregano and red wine vinegar. Heat, then cool and pour over lamb. Refrigerate up to 12 hours. Cut the lamb into small pieces and put on skewers.
Grill to medium rare. While grilling, season with salt, pepper and dried oregano.

The lamb skewers are served with tzatziki. First, peel and seed the cucumber. Grate it and strain out all the liquid. You also need to strain any liquid from the honey yogurt. Saute 1/2 tsp. garlic in olive oil until it's soft. Mix the cucumber, honey yogurt, sauted garlic and mint. Serves 2.
