salad on a skewer

here is a quick recipe that i found online within the key ingredient web application.  it seems that people from around the country submit their favorites, and this one looked good enough to try.
these skewers could be used for appetizers, game time snacks, outdoor entertaining, or even just as a quick salad option when only two of you are dining.  they are very much like my Greek salad recipe, without the greens. also, served over a small bed of mache, one of these skewers drizzled with dressing would look very chic.
to make the skewers:
select the very best grape tomatoes, 3 ounces of reduced fat feta cheese, kalamata olives which have been pitted, red onion, fresh oregano, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil, kosher salt, ground lemon pepper, and short 6 inch bamboo wood skewers.
place the feta in the freezer for 30 minutes to chill firm.  this tip will help you skewer the feta without it crumbling.  cut feta into cubes for the recipe.  next slice red onion, and then begin to assemble the skewers.
in this order, use tomato, feta, olive, onion, and then another tomato if desired.
in a small bowl, mix 2 teaspoons lemon juice, 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons chopped oregano, and 2 tablespoons olive oil. add lemon pepper and kosher salt to taste. drizzle dressing over the skewers.  serve and enjoy !
