Tips for Grilling Success:


Achieve grilling perfection with these expert tips:

Marinate the turkey for at least 30 minutes to infuse it with flavor and ensure tenderness.

Grill the skewers over medium-high heat for even cooking, turning occasionally until the turkey is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

Serve the skewers immediately to enjoy them at their freshest and juiciest.



Follow these simple steps to create your Turkey and Vegetable Skewers with Tzatziki Sauce:


In a bowl, combine the cubed turkey breast with olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, chopped herbs, salt, and pepper. Allow the turkey to marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

While the turkey is marinating, prepare the tzatziki sauce by combining Greek yogurt, grated cucumber, minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, chopped dill, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Thread the marinated turkey cubes onto skewers, alternating with chunks of bell peppers, onions, and zucchini.

Brush the skewers with olive oil and season with additional salt and pepper if desired.

Place the skewers on the preheated grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the turkey is cooked through and the vegetables are tender and lightly charred.

Once cooked, remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.

Serve the Turkey and Vegetable Skewers hot off the grill with a generous dollop of tzatziki sauce on the side.

Garnish with fresh lemon wedges, chopped parsley, and crumbled feta cheese if desired.

Enjoy the vibrant flavors and Mediterranean flair of this delicious dish!
