Make Half Your Plate Fruits & Veggies
|Grilled lamb is delightful with any green salad, especially this Asian-inspired version.|
|Recipe Cost for 4 People: $8.63 ($2.16/serving)*|
|Preparation Time: 2 hours for marinating lamb; 30 minutes for preparation|
|Mix marinade/dressing ingredients; divide evenly. Place lamb cubes in a glass dish; pour half of the marinade/dressing over the lamb. Cover and refrigerate at least two hours. In a large bowl, toss cabbage, carrots, jicama (optional), onions, and sesame seeds. Remove lamb and discard marinade. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes; divide lamb among the 4 skewers. On hot grill, cook the lamb skewers 5-6 minutes per side (or to desired degree of doneness). Remove lamb from skewers, add to salad, and toss. To serve, divide salad evenly on four plates. Drizzle with remaining dressing.
*If cubed leg of lamb is not available at your meat market, ask the butcher to prepare it for you.
