Combine the spring onion, oregano, lemon rind, chilli flakes, if using, half the tomato and 1 tbs lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the eggs and 1/3 cup (95g) yoghurt and stir to combine. Stir in the flour, fetta and bicarbonate of soda.
Meanwhile, place remaining tomato in a bowl with the oil and 1 1/2 tbs lemon juice. Season and toss to combine. Set aside to develop the flavours.
Add enough extra oil to cover the base of a large frying pan. Heat over medium-high heat. Add three 1/4 cup (60ml) portions of the batter to the pan. Cook for 2-3 mins or until base is golden brown. Turn and cook for 1-2 mins or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat, in 3 more batches, with the remaining batter.
Combine the garlic, remaining yoghurt and remaining lemon juice in a small bowl. Season.
Spoon the yoghurt mixture onto serving plates. Top with fritters. Divide the lettuce among serving plates and spoon over tomato mixture to serve.
Serve with pita bread, lemon wedges and oregano leaves
