Colorful garden veggies and cubes of lean pork make for terrific kebabs. As an alternative, you can make this dish by using trimmed center-cut pork chops and grilling them whole and placing the vegetables in a grill basket to cook.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Lemon(s)

1 item(s), grated zest and lemon juice

Canola oil

4 tsp(s)

Garlic clove(s)

3 clove(s), medium, minced

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Black pepper

¼ tsp(s)

Uncooked lean boneless pork chop(s)

1 pound(s)

Uncooked zucchini

1 medium, halved lengthwise and cut into 1.25-cm (½-in) slices

Yellow summer squash

1 medium, halved lengthwise and cut into 1.25-cm (½-in) slices

Fresh cherry tomato(es)

2 cup(s)

Uncooked red onion(s)

1 medium, cut into 8 wedges

Basil

¼ cup(s), small leaves

Lemon(s)

Instructions

  1. Spray grill rack with nonstick spray; preheat grill to medium high or prepare medium-hot fire.
  2. Stir together lemon zest and juice, oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in large bowl; add pork, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, and onion; toss to coat. Thread onto 16 (6-inch) skewers. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes before threading on chicken and vegetables to prevent charring.)
