I love lemon and other citrus flavors so when I found this recipe in Taste of Home, I had to try it!!! Feel free to change the veggies to suit what you have on hand or prefer to use.

I was going to rate this 4 stars on my own but DH said very good meal and he doesn't comment like that much so... I used freshly squeezed lemon juice, regular vinegar for religious reasons, sea salt to taste, freshly ground black pepper and the rest. I marinated the lot over night and served them with Tzatziki on a bed of Lemon Rice Pilaf with a fresh salad on the side. Made for Family Picks, ZWT6, Greece/Cyprus region, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.

Great. I used a premade kabob from the meat market, so this really was quick.
