I donâ€™t know how I caught the bug, but two years ago I started grilling and I havenâ€™t looked back. And of course, summer is THE time to rev up the BBQ, invite some friends over, and get cooking! Before I kick off the season I usually try out a few delicious marinade recipes to get my grilling-chops up to speed. A little trial and error helps me figure out exactly how far ahead, or intensely, to marinade meats and veggies. Then, I take the fruits of my labor to lunch in the form of wraps, salads, mixed with rice â€¦ such delicious treats to spice up my workday. Here are a few of my favorite marinades you can try for yourself:
– Thai chicken bbq. I use thighs instead of wings.
– Grilled sweet potatoes and scallion salad
– Brick chicken. I make this on a grill instead of in the oven, with a brick covered in foil
– Balsamic grilled vegetables.
Enjoy, and add to the list in comments! — Rebecca F.
