Greek Lamb with Crusted Herbs and Tzatziki Sauce

Last summer we spent time on the beautiful Greek island of Corfu where delicious locally produced meats, spices and produce are abundant. Our guide Spiros helped us find all sorts of restaurants and markets and also taught me this traditional Greek way to cook leg of lamb. Like so much of the delicious food we enjoyed there this is a simple recipe with just a few ingredients. The key is to use high quality herbs, olive oil and garlic. The traditional tzatziki sauce has a cool, light flavor that really complements the herb crust.
