1. In a large re-sealable plastic bag, combine all ingredients except lamb until thoroughly incorporated. Add in lamb, seal bag and turn a couple of times to coat. Refrigerate for at least 6-8 hours but preferably overnight.

2. When ready to cook, drain and discard marinade. Using metal or soaked wooden skewers, thread the meat onto the skewers leaving about an inch in-between each piece. If grilling, cook for about 8-10 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 145-160F. If using an oven, preheat oven to 350F and put a little olive oil in bottom. Add skewered kabobs to dish and bake at 350F for 12 minutes for medium rare or 15 minutes for medium, flipping halfway through. While kabobs are cooking, prepare tzatziki sauce.

3. Serve with sauce for dipping.
