Triple Souvlaki Skewers with Tzatziki Recipe


Greek Souvlaki is traditionally made with chicken, lamb, or pork. In this Triple Souvlaki Skewers with Tzatziki Recipe, we have prepared all three meats and combined them onto one skewer to create a simply fabulous taste. The Tzatziki sauce brings all the flavors together. Serve with a nice Greek salad.


If you are not a fan of lamb, substitute tender beef cubes such as beef tenderloin or ribeye. You'll achieve the best flavor by marinating wooden skewers and each of the meats for 2 hours.  If using zip lock bags, place the sealed bags into a casserole dish in the refrigerator just in case of leakage.
