This colorful appetizer would also make a great main dish--just double the recipe so each person gets two skewers. If you have vegetarian diners, you can build some of the skewers without meatballs.

How to Make It

Step 1

Soak 12 (10-in.) bamboo skewers in water about 30 minutes. Heat grill to medium (about 350°).

Step 2

Combine half of the rub with lamb in a bowl and shape into 12 balls. Brush cheese and squash with oil, then coat with remaining rub. Thread meatballs, cheese, and squash onto 6 double sets of skewers, holding skewers slightly apart and alternating ingredients.

Step 3

Grill, turning once, until meat is medium-rare, 7 to 8 minutes total.
