  • 1 1/2 lb (750 g) ground Ontario veal
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) minced fresh cilantro, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) medium curry powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 wooden skewers, soaked in water
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped cucumber

Green Onion Yogurt Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) honey
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) 0% Plain Greek yogurt



Preheat a grill over medium-high heat. In a large bowl combine the veal, minced green onion, 2 tbsp (30 mL) cilantro, garlic, ginger, curry powder and ½ tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper until just combined, do not over mix. Shape the meat into 8-inch (20 cm) long sausages and thread onto a skewer.

Brush the grill and kebabs with canola oil. Grill kebabs for 3 meats per side until meat is thoroughly cooked through, 12 minutes total.

Meanwhile, make yogurt sauce. Stir together Green Onion Yogurt Sauce ingredients and refrigerate.

In a bowl, toss together tomato wedges, cucumber, and olive oil with some salt and pepper.

Divide tomato salad between plates, top with kebab and a dollop of prepared Green Onion Yogurt sauce.
