  1. In large bowl, combine onion, lemon zest, lemon juice, parsley, cilantro, mint, salt, cumin, paprika, pepper, and olive oil. Stir well.
  2. Add lamb and toss to coat with marinade.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  4. Soak skewers in warm water for about 1 hour before assembling kebabs.
  5. Preheat grill to high, and lightly oil grate.
  6. Thread lamb onto soaked skewers, and place them on grill. Cook, turning frequently to promote even browning, for 12 to 14 minutes.
  7. Wrap pita bread around meat on skewer, and while holding bread firmly around meat, twist skewer out of meat.
  8. Drizzle meat with feta spread to your liking. Repeat with remaining pitas and skewers, and enjoy!
