  1. Mix the olive oil, the vinegar, garlic, lemon zest, cayenne pepper and oregano in a shallow dish; season. Coat the peppers, courgette, red onions and tomatoes in the marinade.
  2. If cooking under the grill, preheat to high. Thread the veg, alternating each type, onto metal or pre-soaked wooden skewers. Place on a foil-lined tray and grill for 15 mins, turning halfway, until golden and beginning to char. Alternatively, grill on a barbecue over a medium heat for 15 mins, turning halfway.
  3. Arrange the skewers on a serving dish, scatter over the mint and drizzle over the lemon juice.

Tip: The skewers can be prepared 3 hrs ahead.
