Lamb Meatballs with Roasted Grapes and a Yogurt Dill Sauce
Posted Mar 03 2010 2:15pm
Often I eat a yummy dish at a restaurant and then I rush home because I am so excited to try to recreate it. Well, recreate it with way less salt. One dish that I did that with, and I am excited to share with you, is skewered lamb meatballs with grapes and a yogurt /dill dipping sauce (similar to Greek Tzatziki). I think that the savory lamb, with the roasted grapes and cool dip work really well together. You have already read that I love lamb and anything with yogurt . I especially love the use of roasted grapes in this recipe. They are savory and sweet and loaded with nutrients.
Many of grape's health benefits come from a category of phytonutrients. These compounds appear to decrease the risk of heart disease, by lowering LDL cholesterol and strengthening the heart muscle. They are also beneficial for those with hypertension. Grapes prevent lung cancer, are anti-microbial and lower the risk of Alzheimer's Disease. Grapes are a great source of manganese, vitamin B6, thiamin, potassium and vitamin C.
