Olive Oil Lime-Garlic Marinade

This is for you Lyndzee! :)

This is an easy delicious marinade that can be used on any meat, fish, or veggies. Last night I marinated chicken and veggies, cooked them in a skillet, and served them over brown rice. It was quite yummy!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Marinate time: 4 hours to overnight

RECIPE TIP: This marinade can be made quickly in a blender or food processor, or if desired, mince garlic and combine with the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Use it to marinate meat or your favorite fresh summer vegetables.

2 large cloves garlic
1/2 cup olive oil (I used less)
1/3 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons grated lime peel
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt

In blender or food processor, with machine running, add garlic. Add remaining ingredients. Process until blended; scraping down sides, if necessary. Pour marinade into bowl or plastic food storage bag. Add about 2 pounds meat or 4 to 5 cups vegetables; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate**. Marinate 4 hours to overnight. Grill or broil meat. Serve vegetables with slotted spoon.

Makes about 1 cup marinade

**If desired, vegetables can be marinated at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours.
