let's get started
In this fresh and light Skinni recipe, we have served Skinni beef kebabs straight from the grill with a chunky Greek salad, fat free tzatziki, and a diet friendly bread option should you need it. We recommend using Total or Liberte fat free plain yoghurt as they both keep their creamy texture well. Alternatively, if you don't do dairy, you could use one of the coconut based yoghurts now widely available.

Although the concept of clean eating has been and gone, more and more people are embracing the ideas within. Dairy for example, can cause allergies in a wide number of people, but you really shouldn't be omitting it from your diet unless you can see the health benefits for yourself. A rich source of calcium, particularly vital for women of all ages, live natural yoghurt also contains beneficial bacteria that are essential for gut health. We also include a small amount of feta cheese (again a rich source of calcium) as Greek salad is just the same without it. 

Many of the traditional salad items such as cucumber are dismissed as providing nothing but water. Not only is the water in raw vegetables helpful in maintaining hydration but also fills us up whilst keeping the calorie count low. Cucumber, is actually pretty amazing. Soothing and cooling, it also helps the body flush out toxins. The perfect route to strong healthy nails, cucumber is a great source of the mineral silica. Bring it on. And with cucumber in the salad and the tzatziki, this recipe delivers a double whammy of all that good stuff. 

And that's not all. Apart from the lean protein in beef, which tops up your vital resources of iron, zinc and B12, there is yet more vegetable goodness to be had. Onion and garlic really do help keep the doctor at bay, with (amongst other things) a powerful compound called allicin which boasts anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-oxidant, and anti-viral properties. Oh and it just happens to keep blood pressure down too. Nature's medicine indeed. 

Tomatoes are another natural source of super nutrients. High in vitamin C, they contain the powerful antioxidant compound  lycopene.

1. Heat a cast iron griddle pan or frying pan over a medium high heat, or light the BBQ.

2. Grate the cucumber and squeeze between your hands so that the juice is removed.

3. Mix together with the rest of the tzatziki ingredients.

4. Mix together the salad ingredients.

5. Mix the dressing ingredients and toss with the salad.

6. Grill the kebabs for about 5 minutes on each side. If cooking indoors, add a splash of water to create a little moistening steam.

7. Toast the sandwich thins and split apart.

8. Serve the salad and kebabs over the bread, and eat with the tzatziki.
