Directions

  1. Peel cucumber and remove seeds. Place cucumber in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Remove half of cucumber; set aside. Process remaining cucumber until pureed. Combine pureed cucumber and reserved cucumber; stir in the sour cream, lemon juice and seasonings. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the first seven kabob ingredients. Pour 1-1/2 cups marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the lamb. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  3. Drain and discard marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread lamb, pineapple and tomatoes.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the lettuces, onions, tomato, sprouts, grapes and walnuts; sprinkle with cheese. Set aside.
  5. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until lamb reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting frequently with reserved marinade.
  6. Beat butter and honey until blended; brush over pitas. Serve with kabobs, salad and sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
