Today I woke up with a craving for ground beef meatballs, like my grandmother used to make. The best thing about meatballs is that I can create many different recipes: cold or hot dishes, with spaghettis, as a snack with bread, and many more. Today, I’ve got a craving for meatball and veggie kebabs. They’ll lie on a bed of lettuce surrounded by tomatoes, cucumbers, and bathed in a simple creamy mustard sauce. MORE + LESS -
