Simple Marinade

This is one of my favorite marinades.  Simple and Delicious.

Simple Marinade

1/3 cup olive oil (or any oil you care to use)
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar (or any vinegar you want to use)
2 cloves garlic, minced
Juice of 1/2 lemon (or lime, orange, pineapple – pick a juice any juice!)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combination of herbs (I use fresh basil, rosemary and thyme.  You can use whatever you want; cilantro, parsley, oregano – so many to play with!)

Whisk first 5 ingredients.  Place meat or vegetable in plastic bag or container of your choice.  Add marinade, along with herbs.  I marinade at least 2 hours.  Lots of times I will do in the morning before work and let set all day in the refrigerator.  Very simple and delicious grilled, baked or fried.  Whatever you desire!  Enjoy!!
