Directions

Step 1

Creamy Lemon, Pepper and Oregano Sauce: In small bowl, combine yogurt, 1-½ tbsp (22 mL) of the oregano, 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil, lemon zest, salt and pepper; set aside.

Step 2

Thread each skewer with 1 zucchini slice gently weaved around cherry tomatoes and Canadian Feta cheese cubes alternately, using 2 tomatoes and 2 Canadian Feta cubes per skewer and finishing with 1 green olive. Repeat with remaining skewers. Brush skewers with remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil; set aside.

Step 3

Preheat well-greased barbecue or grill to 450°F (230°C). Grill skewers, Canadian Feta cheese side down, for 1 to 2 min or until grill marks appear without melting the cheese. Turn skewers to zucchini side down and grill 2 to 3 min more or until lightly grilled. Remove to platter; garnish with remaining ½ tsp (2 mL) oregano. Serve hot with Creamy Lemon, Pepper and Oregano Sauce on the side.
