Greek-style salmon kebabs with tzatziki sauce

Posted by

A light summery bowl of kebabs and salads for lunch makes the day perfect. Greek-style salmon kebabs with tzatziki sauce will transport you to Greece while you are still at home.

The creamy tzatziki sauce is my favorite, and it is so healthy. I even place it in my sandwiches. 

Summer break starts in a day or two. I am struggling to choose between travel and no travel. A few close-by destinations have been opened, but it seems like a distant dream with so many formalities. I wish I could visit Greece and Cyprus. These two places have been on our bucket list for travel. 

At Least with my food, I can bring Greece into my kitchen. I usually prepare Greek-style chicken kebabs but tried to keep it light with salmon. I also skipped the bread and served these with salad and pearl couscous. 

Lemony kebabs with herby couscous and creamy Tzatziki sauce is a recipe you should try.
