    For the marinade

    • 1 lemon, juice only
    • 200ml natural yoghurt
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 3 small sprigs fresh oregano, chopped
    • 1 tbsp Siúcra rich dark sugar
    • 8 mint leaves, shredded

    For the dressing

    • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
    • 2 tbsp sherry
    • 2 tsp flaxseeds
    • 2cm fresh ginger, grated
    • ½ lemon, zest only
    • 100ml rapeseed or sunflower oil
    • 2 tsp Siúcra light golden sugar
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    For the salad

    • 100g rocket
    • 1 cantaloupe melon, peeled and diced
    • 200g strawberries, hulled and sliced in half
    • 80g feta cheese, to crumble on top
    • Bay leaves, for threading
    • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for an hour
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Combine all the ingredients in a bowl for the marinade, add the lamb, cover and leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours. 
     
    To make the dressing
    Combine all the ingredients together and whisk well. Check the seasoning and add salt and freshly ground black pepper if needed. Set aside. 
     
    To prepare the skewers
    Thread the lamb strips and bay leaves alternatively onto the skewers. Place on a clean plate and pat with kitchen paper to dry off some of the excess marinade. 
    Heat a large frying pan or chargrill pan. Drizzle the skewers with oil and cook the lamb to your preference.
     
    To assemble the salad
    Combine the rocket leaves, diced melon and strawberries together with a little dressing and spoon onto a serving platter. 
    Pour the extra dressing into a jug to serve separately. 
     
    To serve 
    Place the skewers on top of the salad and crumble over some feta cheese.
