80--- Grilled Brussels Sprouts with Tzatziki Dipping Sauce

Serve this lovely dish as an app or side dish to your next summer get-together.  You'll be the talk of the town! 

Grilled Brussels Sprouts with Tzatziki Dipping Sauce
Serves 6

1 lb fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed of stems and wilted leaves
Olive oil spray
1/4 tsp sea salt
Dash black pepper

3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp fresh dill, chopped
1/4 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt

Heat grill, then reduce heat to medium.  Soak 5-6 wooden skewers in water.

Place Brussels sprouts in a large bowl and add 1/4 cup water.  Microwave for 3 minutes, until they begin to soften.  

Remove from microwave and allow to cool slightly (for handling).  Place Brussels sprouts on skewers (through centers not stems) and spray generously with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place skewers on the grill over direct heat.

Cook Brussels sprouts for 7-8 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.  Transfer skewers to indirect heat and cook for additional 5-7 minutes, or until soft.  Remove from the grill and allow to cool for 3-4 minutes prior to serving.

For tzatziki: combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix until smooth.  Place in a covered glass container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
