3.To make tzatziki dressing; remove and discard seeds from cucumber; coarsely grate flesh into a medium bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients until combined.
4.Cook lamb on a heated oiled grill plate (or grill or barbecue) about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, or until cooked as desired. Remove lamb from heat.
