1 ts Oregano;dried                 
      2 c  Yogurt;pain                         2    Garlic cloves;minced
    1/2    Cucumber;English,peeled &           3 tb Olive oil

  "Begin preparing the tzazik a few hours before serving. The flavours need
  time to blend. Marinate the meat overnight to absorb the wine and garlic."
  Souvlaki: Place the meat in a large bowl. Pour in the wine and sprinkle
  minced garlic and oregano. Imbed the lemon strips among the cubes of meat
  and drizzle with olive oil. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate
  12 hours or overnight. Shake or stir the mixture several times during the
  marination period.
    About 30 minutes before serving, drain off and discard the marinade.
  Thread the chunks of meat onto long skewers, brushing with a little olive
  oil. (We usually BBQ the peppers and tomatoes on separate skewers but it's
  really up to the chef.)
    Over medium coals, barbeque the souvlaki until it's done the way you like
  it. Serve on a bed of rice and pass the tzaziki to sppon on top. SERVES 4-6
  Tzaziki: Line a colander or sieve with cheesecloth (or gauze) and set it
  over a bowl. Pour in the yogurt and allow it to drip for an hour or so.
  After the yogurt has drained, combine it, in a small bowl, with the
  cucumber and the garlic. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and
  refrigerate until just before serving. While the meat is BBQing, drizzle
  the olive oil over the surface, and without stirring, sprinkle on the salt.
  It needs no mixing - your guest will do that when they dollop it onto their
  souvlaki. MAKES: About 3 cups
