4 T. Fresh lemon juice
3 – 4 T. EVOO Oil
1 T. red wine vinegar (or just wine)

Souvlaki Meat Sticks:1 lb. chicken or pork (shoulder), cubedHandful of red and green bell peppers, cubed1/2 onion, white or purple, cubedSoak your wooden sticks in water for at least 30 minutes and then assemble your chicken/pork cubes alternating with peppers and/or onion cubes. Place in shallow pan or dish and pour marinade evenly over all of the souvlaki and let marinate overnight or at least a few hours, turning once.Souvlaki is best grilled over charcoals on a low to medium heat, but can just as easily be grilled on a gas or indoor grill. Depending on the thickness and size of your meat, cook evenly on both sides until middle is white but still juicy. I always like to baste it once or twice while grilling using some of the marinade.
Summer is the perfect time for this Greek treat, try it and let me know what you think? I always love hearing from you in the comments section or a personal email.
