Wash produce before use
Make and cook the skewers
- Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
- Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large bowl, combine the onion, meat, raisins, and Greek spice blend. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix gently until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into 6  ovals, each about ¾ inch thick; thread each onto a wooden skewer.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the skewers and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, prepare the salad.
Make the arugula-pear salad
- Core and cut the pear into 1-inch pieces.
- Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the hazelnuts.
- Cut the lemon into wedges for garnish. [Cut 1 lemon into wedges; save the remaining lemon for another use.]
In a large bowl, toss together the arugula, pear, hazelnuts, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the skewers and arugula-pear salad to individual plates. Serve with the lemon wedges.
- Measure the onion.
- Crush the hazelnuts.
- Assemble the arugula-pear salad.
