Pork Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce

Pork Souvlaki {with Tzatziki Sauce}.

It’s time for a relatively wordless Wednesday.  These skewers of happiness happened.  A simple marinade of olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic and fresh oregano infuse the tender pork chunks with classic Greek flavor.
