Pork Souvlaki:


Tzatziki: In small colander, mix cucumber with salt; let stand for 10 minutes. Squeeze out liquid. Mix together cucumber, yogurt, garlic, dill (if using) and lemon juice. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Pork Souvlaki: While cucumber is draining, 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. Let stand for 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: 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.

To Finish: Serve pork, tomatoes, onion, lettuce and tzatziki on pitas.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: You can substitute cubed boneless skinless chicken breast or thigh for the pork. Just cook it a little longer, until it's no longer pink inside and the juices run clear when the meat is pierced.
