  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp herbes de provence
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 clove finely minced garlic
  • a pinch of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c light sour cream
  • 2 tbsp mayonaise
  • 1/4 c finely chopped cucumber

1.  Place 8 bamboo skewers in water and set aside to soak for at least 20 minutes.

2.  To prepare the marinade, in a medium bowl, mix together the mustard, 2 tbsp of the lemon juice, olive oil, herbes de provence, minced garlic, sugar, salt and pepper and set aside.

3.  Trim any extra fat off the lamb and cut into 1″ pieces placing them into bowl with the marinade and coating them well.  Let stand for 10 minutes.  Then thread the lamb pieces onto the skewers and place onto a broiler pan.
