Tzatziki: Mix cucumber with salt; let stand for 10 minutes. Squeeze out moisture. In small bowl, mix cucumber, yogurt, garlic, dill (if using) and lemon juice.

Meanwhile, trim and cut pork into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. In large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper; add pork and stir to coat. Marinate for 10 minutes or cover and refrigerate for up to 6 hours.

Thread pork onto metal skewers; brush with any remaining marinade. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning halfway through, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 12 minutes. Remove from skewers. Serve with tomatoes, onion, lettuce and tzatziki on pitas.
