Fresh Herb–Marinated Lamb Tenderloin Kebabs

recipe
"My family enjoys lamb, so I was delighted to discover lamb tenderloin at the supermarket. The butcher explained it's a perfect cut to slice and thread onto skewers. It has a wonderful flavor, and like beef and pork tenderloin, it's a lean and versatile choice. I like to serve these with roasted asparagus, broccoli, or cauliflower and either quinoa or toasted brown rice with saffron." —Florence Gardner, Greenville, S.C.
