Wash produce before use

1

Make the beef souzoukaklia

  • Cut a small corner from the ground beef packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, onion, raisins, and Greek spice blend. Season with salt and pepper and mix gently until just combined. Using wet hands, shape the beef mixture into 6 [12] ovals, each about ¾ inch thick; thread each onto a wooden skewer.

2

Sear the lemon; cook the souzoukaklia

  • Cut the lemon in half crosswise.
In a dry large frying pan over high heat, add the lemon halves, cut sides down, and cook until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. In the same pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the beef souzoukaklia and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, prepare the salad.

3

Make the arugula-grape salad

  • Remove any stems from the grapes; cut the grapes in half.
  • Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the hazelnuts.
  • Squeeze enough juice from one of the seared lemon halves to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp]; set aside the lemon halves for serving.
In a medium bowl, toss together the arugula, grapes, hazelnuts, 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] lemon juice, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the beef souzoukaklia to individual plates and squeeze the remaining juice from the seared lemon halves over them. Serve with the arugula-grape salad.
