Preparation steps

1.

Soak bread in lukewarm water. Preheat broiler. Peel and finely chop garlic. Rinse, trim and thinly slice scallions. Rinse oregano, shake dry and pluck half the leaves. Chop leaves finely.

2.

Crumble feta. In a bowl, mix feta with yogurt, scallions, chopped oregano and half of the garlic. Season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Add ground lamb, remaining garlic, bread (squeezed to remove excess water), and egg. Season with salt and cayenne pepper and mix well. Form mixture into meatballs.

3.

In a hot pan, fry meatballs in melted butter until golden-brown. Top meatballs with cheese mixture and broil, watching carefully, 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile, rinse tomatoes and cucumber. Core tomatoes and cut into wedges. Halve cucumber lengthwise and cut into thin slices. Peel onions and cut into strips.

4.

Drain olives and jarred peppers and combine in a bowl with the tomatoes, cucumber and onion. To make the vinaigrette: in a bowl, whisk together the oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle vinaigrette over the salad. Garnish lamb meatballs with remaining oregano and serve with the salad. Serve with fresh white bread if desired.
