How to Make Cherry tomato, marinated feta and basil skewers
no cooking required
- 350g/12oz feta
- 120ml/4fl oz extra virgin olive oil
- 1 unwaxed lemon
- 2 tsp freshly chopped oregano
- 1 tsp cracked black pepper
- 40 cherry tomatoes
- large bunch of basil
- 40 long skewers
Cut the feta into 40 even squares and place in a bowl. Pour over the olive oil; add the lemon zest, oregano and cracked black pepper. Leave to marinate for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight.
To assemble, take a skewer and place a cherry tomato first, follow with a cube of the feta. You could prepare the skewers to this stage in advance, just keep refrigerated.
Finish each one with a basil leaf. Skewer one tip of the leaf then the other tip so it looks like a little sail. Repeat until you have forty skewers.
