5. Mediterranean Diet Beef Kebab Skewers Recipe



This Mediterranean Diet Beef Kebab Skewers recipe is the perfect summer BBQ dish. The key to a delicious kebab is using a good cut of steak, and I prefer top sirloin for its balance of leanness and tenderness. But feel free to experiment with other cuts of steak!


Another great thing about this recipe is that you can easily mix and match the vegetables you use. Bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms are all classic kebab ingredients, but you could also try zucchini, summer squash, or cherry tomatoes.

7. Mediterranean Diet Tawook Chicken Skewers Recipe

Tawook Chicken Skewers are a beloved traditional BBQ dish from Syria, known for their simplicity and versatility. Growing up in Damascus, my family's summer barbeque won't be complete without them!

Try making this Mediterranean combo for your next BBQ!
