The flavors of Turkey and Greece unite in this innovative take on Mediterranean street food. We start with perfectly seasoned lean ground turkey shaped and served on skewers next to crispy romaine leaves, pickled onions, tomatoes, and lemony roasted cauliflower. It’s all topped with a drizzle of harissa for an elegant plate, but still totally cool to eat with your hands.
