Pork Souvlaki

Souvlaki is fast becoming one of my fave dishes!! Juicy, tender, flavoursome meat, with a huge crisp salad, and pitta or a wrap (just add the calories). It really doesn’t get much better for me. I dress mine up with a little low fat garlic mayo or Greek yogurt with a hint of garlic, and fiery hot chilli sauce to give it a real kick.

It’s so quick and easy, is super healthy, and makes a great lunch or dinner. If you make more than you need the souvlaki can be eaten cold, the day after for lunch too. This really is Rachel food heaven!!

This was a lovely addition to our usual boaring bbq selection. I put a little less spice in with it being the first time I tried it.
We will certainly have this again.

Looks good. I prefer chicken souvlaki – reminds me of the Relax restaurant in Zante. Might have to give this one a go.
