- 2 pounds (910 g) lean lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes

Put the lamb cubes in a large resealable plastic bag.
Combine the oil, wine, salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic.
Pour the mixture over the lamb cubes in the bag.
Let this marinate for at least a few hours.
When you're ready to cook the lamb, pour off the marinade and thread the cubes onto skewers.
You can grill these or broil them 8 inches (20 cm) or so from the broiler.
Turn the kebabs while they're cooking and check for doneness by cutting into a chunk of meat after 10 minutes.
They should be thoroughly cooked in 15 minutes.
(If you don't have any skewers, you can always just lay the lamb cubes on the broiler pan.
They're a lot easier to turn over if they're on skewers, however.
) While the meat is cooking, wash and dry your lettuce and arrange it on serving plates.
Push the cooked meat off the skewers and onto the prepared beds of lettuce.
Scatter some red onion over each plate and arrange 8 cherry tomato halves on each.
Drizzle each plate with a couple of tablespoons of dressing and top each with a tablespoon of yogurt.
