Honey and Mint-Marinated Lamb Skewers

5 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 Tablespoons honey
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
Salt and pepper
3 pounds lean, boneless lamb, cut into 1" pieces
36 skewers
Lemon Feta Dip:
2 (8 ounce) containers feta cheese
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 finely minced jarred pepperoncini
1 Tablespoon pepperoncini juice

Whisk together marinade ingredients, add lamb cubes and marinade overnight. Discard marinade and thread marinated lamb on skewers; preheat broiler. Place kabobs on oiled broiler pan and broil about 8 minutes, turning skewers as needed until browned and caramelized. Serve with Lemon Feta Dip: Combine all the dip ingredients in a blender or food processor, puree until smooth. Transfer to a serving dish, cover and refrigerate until serving time.

These hearty bites are nice addition to the appetizer offering of any party. These kabobs can be marinated and skewered up to a day ahead. At party time just pop them under the broiler for a few minutes and they're ready to serve. The dip is a tasty accompaniment that can be made ahead as well.
Number of Servings: 36 skewers
