Vinaigrette

2 teaspoons lemon juice

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Time to assemble!

For the Skewers: Thread the skewers starting with a tomato, then a piece of feta cheese, an olive, a piece of onion and finish with another tomato. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. TIP feta tends to crumble before you can skewer it. An easy solution: pop the block in your freezer for 30 minutes before chopping it up. You still have to be careful when you stick the pieces, but the cheese should hold its shape much better.

For the Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, red wine vinegar and oregano. Whisk in the olive oil until the mixture thickens. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Arrange the skewers on a serving platter. Spoon the vinaigrette over the skewers and sprinkle with the chopped oregano. enjoy!
