Recipe Saturday!

Quick and easy, I've used this marinade for grilling chicken, salmon, ribs, "country style pork", portabellas, skewers of button mushrooms and peppers, or just skewers of button mushrooms. I've also used it for broiling salmon in the oven. It seems like no matter what you use it on, it comes out great! I've used this at least 2-3 times a month for the last 2 years, sometimes several times a week...

Italian Marinade

1/4 cup lemon juice (or orange juice, though I've never tried it)
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 envelope of "Good Seasons" Italian Salad Dressing mix
3 Tbsp. of Vodka (optional, and again, have never tried it)

It's not a "soak" marinade, just brush it on or dip your chicken in it and hit the grill...

one of my favorite cooking ingredients is beer.. usually dark beer.. sometimes Killians..

I use it to make bread.. to pour into chili and onto ham and steam burgers and add to pulled pork.. or fish... yummers! and so easy!

I have added your marinade to my file and will try it.. ( minus vodka .. )

and thanks..
glad you are feeling better

This sounds scrumptious!

Just like you!

We barbeque frequently, so I can’t wait to try it.

Thanks for playing Recipe Saturday!
