This summer’s go to marinade is full of flavor.

I’m a grilling nut. As soon as it’s warm enough to scrape the snow off my grill, most of my cooking moves outdoors. Food just tastes better and there is so little clean up. And who doesn’t love the taste of something right off the grill?

So here’s this summer marinade. It is delicious on steaks but also great with almost any protein. It’s lemony and herby and is gives everything a huge amount of flavor. So make a big jar of it and keep it on hand for whatever looks good at the store. It’s what’s for dinner this summer!
