Yay - It's summer and we've been enjoying our grilling time!  Now it's your turn to fire up the grill and make these easy Grilled Pork Kabobs with Chile-Lime Sauce.  I love meals (and I'm guessing you do too) that come together quick after a day of work or some summer playing time! Marinade these the night before or in the morning to have this meal on your table in under 30 minutes.  And if you have a garden, you might have some of these veggies in it or stop by your local farmer's market.

If you aren't a fan of the 'other white meat', feel free to substitute chicken.  The marinade sauce would pair well with either.

We enjoyed this dish served over quinoa along with some pineapple salsa (store bought).  We also dined on the deck and enjoyed our meal outside.  I'm hoping these nice days continue for a loooong time!!
