What you need:

  • 500g lean pork loin, cut into cubes

What you do:

  1. Place the pork in a non-metallic bowl. Add the oil, lemon juice, oregano and seasoning. Mix well, cover and leave to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Whilst the pork is marinating, soak the bamboo skewers in water.
  3. Thread the cubes of pork onto the skewers with the peppers and courgettes. Brush any remaining marinade over the vegetables.

Handy cook's tip:

Use dips when you’re entertaining to create simple, yet impressive, starters. Simply spoon a selection of dips into individual pots and arrange on a plate with crudités like pepper, carrots, celery and cucumber, and serve with crusty bread. Or make bowls of thick vegetable or tomato soup look and taste special by topping them with a dollop of sour cream and chive dip. Finally, for an impressive canapé or starter, simply toast thick slices of baguette and allow to cool. Then top each with a spoonful of salsa dip, a small piece of mozzarella cheese, decorate with a coriander leave and serve within 10 mins of topping.

Everyone loves fresh dips... They’re a great way to start an evening and also popular as a quick and easy Sunday teatime family snack. But there’s so much more you can do with dips than just dipping You can spread them into sandwiches as a tastier alternative to butter or mayonnaise, dollop them onto jacket potatoes, stir into mashed potato or serve on the side with grilled fish or chicken - a great way to use up any left overs.
