This recipe is one that will please many palates at your next summer barbecue. With simple ingredients and minimal prep time, you can spend less time grilling and more time soaking up the sun with your guests.
A note about homemade marinades – many people are intimidated to make their own marinades, and would rather opt for a store bought version. If I have learned one thing while following the Paleo diet, though, it’s that making your own is so much better.
Not only is the taste improved, but you control the quality of every single ingredient that goes into it. When you make your own, you dictate the quality of the oil, the amount and type of fresh herbs you’d like, and the amount of salt you use. You can make the marinade as suited to your taste buds as you’d like.
Not only that, but it literally takes a few minutes (tops) to throw together. And you can double or triple the batch for recipes going forward.
