I really like the marinade. I could taste the lemon on the pork. The whole meal was good (if not a little labor intensive). Skipped the watermelon slush but looks good, so maybe I'll try sometime.

Doing this in a skillet, without skewers, resulted in more of a stir fry/stew . Was a bit bland (perhaps I didn't marinate long enough) but good with sriracha.

Added white wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, oregano, basil and feta cheese to the salad. It was amazing :). Also baked the kebabs in the oven, worked better then on the stovetop.

Skipped the olives since they were out of my price range, but I added some mushrooms and a pinch of pepper flakes for some zing.
