Who doesn’t love to cook something over an open fire? This recipe is easy, fun, tasty, and for many adults, it will bring back many child hood memories around the campfire. Make new memories for the youngsters of the group, if there are no campfires allowed, use your propane grill as I have had to do this year.

Cucumber Mint Sauce
1 pt Yogurt plain
2 T Mint chopped

Method, blend together, heat & reserve warm as syrup
Cook high direct heat, over charcoal or gas grill or open fire.
If you like, once cooked, slide off the skewer right into a flatbread or roll.
Glaze with honey and hot sauce.
If using bamboo skewers, make sure you soak them in water overnight before skewering, this will prevent them from burning up while cooking.
Always eat off the side of the skewer, do not place sharp end of skewer into mouth (safety)
